The unmistakable fact about the Ridgeland speed camera affair is that it is also a business enterprise.
New concepts, profit-driven and with a nod from government, will proliferate. Happens everyday. It's a bonus if you can wrap yourself in the flag of "safety" to promote this.
Cash-strapped municipalities will find these cameras unavoidably attractive, especially if companies provide the equipment.
The bottom line is that if you start the ball rolling with this issue, you, your kids and relatives will be forced to drive the speed limit exactly, everywhere you go, as these concepts spread. Insurance rates for drivers will rise accordingly. Tradesmen as well. These costs will be passed along to customers.
