Red Light Speed Camera is Just a New Tax

The governments always say they will use the hundreds of millions for after school programs, safety programs and the like.  But they do not do it.  Rather, the hundreds of millions disappears into the huge bureaucratic mess that is government.  In NYC the George Washington bridge is 12 dollars.  The two tunnels likewise and mostly all bridges have high tolls.  The hundreds of millions generated each month just disappears.  The roads here are terrible, the bridges are rusting, and the general infrastructure is crumbling, but the tolls keep coming in and nobody seems to care where the millions go.  It is time for the local populations to attend the local government meetings and to stop the unfair tolls, taxes and now automatic traffic tickets.  If the local citizens don’t stop this, it will only be another source of wasted millions on our backs.
