Another municipality has been caught blatently ignoring the law under the guise of enforcing it. St. Louis city codes requiring proper warning signs for red light cameras were ignored, while drivers received $100 extortion letters from American Traffic Solutions. (ATS keeps $31 of each $100 collected in St. Louis.)

Accidents jumped 43 percent at intersections with traffic cameras the last time Alexandria operated red-light cameras, between 1998 and 2005. That’s according to data compiled by the Virginia Transportation Research Council, a joint venture between the Virginia Department of Transportation and the University of Virginia. Statewide, accidents serious enough to cause injuries increased 18 percent at red-light camera intersections.

And then one day the stop sign was gone.

It was the very stop sign one block from my house that was oddly stationed at a low-traffic, 3-way intersection, tempting every driver to slow down but not come to a complete stop.

How the city cleaned up on that one! I have personally coughed up in excess of $1,000 for tickets there, one time receiving two tickets in as many days. This sign was even the reason that I spent a day in jail for failing to fork over when the judge said I should.
