Speed cameras aren't a money grab? Prove it

May 06, 2010

Our government constantly states that the need for speed cameras is to save lives and not make money ("Sykesville rejects speed cameras," May 6). Here is a novel idea: When someone is caught speeding by the cameras, assess the driver one point on their driving record. This will cause their insurance to rise more than $40 and the same purpose will be fulfilled — safety. This will allow local governments to prove that they do care about our safety and not the money.
