Do we really need more red traffic light speeding cameras or just more cameras rather now? The clearest thing is the red light cameras have not changed driving habits? We all know red light and speed cameras are paced for profit? http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/08/26/revenue-generating-traffic-tickets/
New Analysis Shows More Crashes at Chicago Intersections With Red Light Cameras “They’ve vastly overstated the benefits of the red-light cameras,” http://www.myfoxchicago.com/dpp/news/metro/red-light-cameras-chicago-crashes-accidents-20100607
Revenue or Safety? Colorado Officials Admit Red Light Cameras are all About more Revenue. It turns out that what the city believes are the locations in need of the biggest safety improvements aren’t necessarily going to be the locations that get cameras http://photoradarscam.wordpress.com/2010/01/10/revenue-or-safety-colorado-officials-admit-red-light-cameras-about-revenue/
The speed limit was 45 mph, which meant that, according to the guidelines set by the county, the yellow light ought to be illuminated for 4.5 seconds. how many are not on long enough? There has been some nationwide consternation as to whether the dark pressures of finance have been brought to bear upon counties to such a degree that light durations have been sneakily curtailed. http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-20002210-71.html
I am known to be a common sense radical. One of the oldest rule in Journalism is to follow the money trail, do follow the expense account statements, follow all of the tax payer’s money expenditures included but here also do here follow the employee trails now as well. And you do not have to be an auditor, accountant to do that to see what the the civil and public servants, managers, supervisors too now are doing firsthand.
Just merely often sit in the city hall, police stations, hospitals, nursing and old age homes and do also follow the employees, do see how many times their paths cross your path as well, see what they are actually doing, how many are just walking around, how many are doing their own personal business on tax payer’s money time now too. Now do the same thing with a TV camera.
City hall is so ready to put red light cameras on traffic lights as per cheaper alternative like lengthening the red lights so first do rightfully rightfully first that they put TV cameras, direct on home TVs especially on our tax paid civil and public servants employees. And so do put them also in in aldermen offices, in all of the city hall employees rooms, cafeterias, snack bars, hallways.
Here is what I see anyway for decades when I enter a the civil and public servants work place, I often do still see employees gathered together in bunches in hallways, rooms, nursing stations, triage, all chit chatting, gossiping, have a great time with each other joking around, Now when I come back another day after my making these observations known to all and when they see me there is a clear expression of great, white fear on their faces, and they disperse, do rather start working, and do jokingly or sarcastically even call me “the Supervisor” at the federal, provincial, municipal government offices
People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included are always to be exemplary in behavior, conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary judged, prosecuted for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks.
Now again recently I HAVE TOO OFTEN SEEN SENIOR NURSES HIDING AWAY LOOKING ON THEIR COMPUTERS, BEING ON THE INTERNET, WHILE PATIENTS WERE IN SERIOUS PAIN, AGONY, PATIENTS RATHER NEEDING THEIR ATTENTION.
Canadian health care ranks second to last compared with seven industrialized nations, according to a recent report by a private U.S. foundation that monitors and researches international health-care systems. The Commonwealth Fund studied the health-care systems of Canada, the U.S., Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand and the U.K., and found that only the American system ranks lower than Canada’s. http://www.canada.com/sports/2010wintergames/Canada+health+care+system+better+only+than+America+Report/3200336/story.html
Tax agency workers caught wasting time on web The Canadian Press OTTAWA Misuse of the Internet and email systems is by far the most common problem cited by the agency’s internal affairs and fraud prevention division. – Some Canada Revenue Agency workers have been spending far too much time browsing the Internet and sending offensive emails — and not enough time collecting taxes. Internal reports show an average of 85 employees a year are disciplined for wasting their work days surfing the web, setting up sports pools, sending chain letters, promoting “illegal substances,” sharing offensive cartoons and running pyramid schemes. Crap!!! ” (One) employee browsed the Internet an average of three hours and 32 minutes per day,” says one investigation report from last July, or about half the shift. “He installed four unauthorized software (programs) on his workstation.” Managers at the Canada Revenue Agency were lenient in their undisclosed discipline of the employee because of his “good performance” — even though it was a second offence, says the report. A year earlier, the same worker had been caught browsing the Internet an average of two hours and 25 minutes each day. Another employee — found to be web-surfing an average of 83 minutes a day — was also given lenient treatment in view of his “remorsefulness.” The Canadian Press reported last that agency employees have also been caught reading confidential tax files of ex-spouses, family members, creditors and others without authorization. Officials uncovered an average of 29 of these more serious cases each year — including one instance in which a female employee downloaded 37,500 emails and 776 documents onto personal CDs.
And you know that is all so common in many places now too, our civil and public servants, wasting, stealing the tax payer’s money and those in house security TV’ cameras should now all rather be used to fine them all as well. Fine the offending in civil and public servants, and not just the red light speeders.
PS I rightfully suggest that you put them also in the local motels, hotels, police bars, local restaurants and measure how long the civil and public servants. legislative members, do even also take for their lunches, coffee breaks too.
Majority of accidents are caused by the drunk drivers firstly still. Police do not regularly, actively, year around purse them and why? More people die from alcohol, drugs, hospital neglect, and yet more money is being paid on catching mainly the speeders.. Police do not mind harassing still the ordinary folks with revenue generating traffic, parking, speeding tickets though http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/speeding-is-not-the-major-cause-of-car-accidents-still/
