As I've said all along, I'm not wild about the speed cameras, but I don't think they're horrible either.
What I find extremely comical is the number of people writing letters to the editor explaining how they got a speeding ticket or a red light ticket, and how they're going to do this or that, or boycott Davenport, etc.
They use words like "fleecing motorists" and other things to make it sound like Davenport has issued a toll on Kimberly Road. Yet strangely enough, out of myself, my family, and close friends, none of us have gotten a ticket.
I wonder why this is? Oh yeah... we must not be BREAKING THE LAW.
There's room for debate over whether the cameras are the right or wrong thing for Davenport, but I just don't understand how someone can complain that they were caught doing something that is illegal. Laws aren't written with a clause that says police have to be sporting about catching people.
There's an exceedingly simple way to avoid speeding tickets in Davenport, without boycotting anything. Don't speed.
