To the Editor:

The state is in so much trouble financially and they do not want to stop doing construction where they should not.

Why not put some cameras in at the red lights and charge people $200 every time they go through a red light?

The way people drive through them in Bristol, the deficit will be cleaned up in a couple years.

People say they don’t want them because of privacy.


They just don’t want to get caught going through red lights at speeds of up to 60 miles an hour some times. People figure no one is going to do anything so what is the big deal going through a red light?

It is a big deal because you have a lot of young drivers who, when the light turns green, they go. They don’t always look for the idiot going through the red light.

Let’s get real, House and Senate; put a stop to crashes and have the people who break the laws get us out of this deficit.
