To Anaheim, it doesn't matter if red light cameras are potential cash cows or costly enterprises; they don't want them in their city, period. Last night the Anaheim City Council "expressed support for an city charter amendment that would ban the" cameras that click a picture then ticket motorists who allegedly run the intersection's red light, according to LA Now. Anaheim's mayor, Curt Pringle, said of the cameras and tickets: "It's very discouraging when government thinks its sole purpose is ... to use public safety as a revenue-raising tool." Voters will likely be casting their ballots on the issue in November.
