Duh Mayor has met his match on red light cameras

One of the bills that awaits the governors approval concerns red light camera revenues. There is some interesting verbiage in that bill. For one thing, the city can only keep half the money, the other half has to go to the state. But the half the city may keep has strings attached, the city may only use the funds for public safety and may not put it in the general fund. Which of course means that the city will put less of the general fund money towards public safety so on the whole that is a bit of a wash. But there is one more tidbit that I find intriguing, the city may not notify the credit reporting agencies that you have not paid the fine. This was the one stick the city had to use to force people to pay the civil fines. Now there is no punishment for failing to pay the fine.

This is a GOOD thing!
