There are all kind of excuses but the main factor is 40% of the people who got tickets didn’t pay them and there was nothing that could be done about it.
Lack of viable enforcement was one of the key reasons the program ended, council members said. Although more than 180,000 drivers were ticketed under the program, which began in 2004, a city-authorized audit found that up to just 60 percent of the tickets were paid. Apparently, the manner in which the photo-enforcement law was written made compliance a voluntary action.
Wow, voluntary. Good thing the laws on bank robbery aren’t like that. I wish they would end these cameras everywhere. I have an alarm on my GPS that goes off when I am near one and scares me to death.
