According to an editorial in the Daily Sentinel, the city of Grand Junction “is mulling over whether to install red light cameras around town to help enforce traffic safety.”
That would be a huge mistake. Full stop.
The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel editorial says that the red-light cameras should be given the “green light,” but they could not be more mistaken.
Campfire Colorado is a conservative voice for the PEOPLE – and if there’s one scam that we 100% oppose, it’s the further installation of red-light cameras across Colorado.
Technology is an important tool in the fight against crime and against terrorism but increasing the size of Colorado’s surveillance state with red-light cameras to further drain taxpayers’ wallets is totally unacceptable.
We’ll gladly highlight any efforts – from conservatives or liberals – to push back against Colorado’s surveillance state in cases where it negatively impacts Coloradans’ privacy, our constitutional rights, or unfairly targets our wallets with problematic technology.
