Captain Van responds to last week’s Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Three letters on red light cameras (RLCs) in last week’s issue deserve a response.  The flawed legislation which authorizes RLCs prohibits the evidence from being used for anything else but issuing notices of violation.   It is silly but true that using the photos to establish fault in an accident is prohibited.

The law is also silly because in many cases it merely provides punishment for the crime of not being clairvoyant.  When drivers encounter a traffic light that just turned yellow they must make a snap stop or go decision.  They must base this decision on where they think they will be when the light turns red.  If they guess incorrectly and go when they shouldn’t, it costs $75.  If they stop when they shouldn’t, they increase their risk of being rear-ended.

Unfortunately count-down timers are not authorized or required for traffic lights, and RLC supporters are totally uninterested in promoting this measure.

RLC’s focus on punishing minor violations, not the more serious ones which cause fatalities.  We are waiting for the city to release the factors that contributed to the fatal accident at Highway 90A and Dairy Ashford.

And, we are continuing our pledge drive to establish a legal action fund to overturn the unlawful rejection of our petition of April 19, 2013 which would have put the RLC question on the ballot for the November election.  In just a few weeks of accepting pledges we are nearly a third of the way towards our goal of $5,000.

An online pledge form and videos explaining why RLCs are ineffective in reducing accidents are available here: www.houstoncoalition.net.
