    Default 'Predatory' speed cameras

    I'm still (apparently) immune to them -- touch wood! -- but those of you who aren't, or who have your own ideas about them for other reasons, might find an interesting new form of bias suggested in the way it's thought that safety-and-definitely-not-revenue-cameras-oh-no are sometimes used elsewhere:


    "Attorney General Chris Koster announced lawsuits addressing an issue raised during racially charged protests over the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson."

    I think the key is that over there, defaulting on fines lands you in the jug, with all the expected undesirable consequences, rather than simply funding your holidays and petty-crim lifestyle as it seems to do here ...

    It would be hard to imagine anywhere in Australia turning a profit through traffic fines with our level of bureaucracy, too many mouths to feed.............
