A speeding ticket turns a Cleveland fan into a public enemy.

The cameras are nothing more than a way to generate revenue for cities that can't balance thier budget. It has NOTHING to do with safety. It has to do with $$$$$$$!
Thier attitude is we need to money, rather than make cuts wherever, we'll just take it from the citizens.

I personally avoid going into downtown Cleveland as much as possible for this very reason.

I agree that the cities are turning evil in order to meet their deficit budgets. They should just put people on 1/2 pay or part time to make ends meet, rather than tick off the taxpaying citizens of America.

These cameras remind me of "Big Brother is watching you" in the books that we read as children. I am sad that our governments are actively stalking good citizens so we can feed the lazy ones who have learned how to live for free. I wonder if those cameras are constitutional??

The story does not truly scan properly without the inclusion of the photographs from the police-state camera. Go to City of Cleveland "notice of liability" C.O. 413.031 and review ticket number G002592260, it is public information, and accessible.
WHAT YOU will SEE is a photo of a volvo station wagon putting along, with me and my dog in it, WITH NO OTHER VEHICLES IN SIGHT, NONE NADA, ZILCH, FOR AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE. I might as well have been driving on Highway 6 in Nevada. I sped up slightly to go through a yellow light because there was NO other traffic in or near the intersection, or even IN SIGHT.
It is a violation of an individual's right to make an informed decision. And Cleveland has not heard the end of this.
