This legislation was drafted for the city of Tucson but can be amended for any city. We are looking for people to step up and assist getting this and other initiatives on the ballot.
Traffic cameras are extremely expensive and they don’t necessarily stop accidents, what they do is create a source of revenue for city officials and courts that are often abused. Often, people are given tickets for victimless crimes where a minor traffic infraction ends up costing them hundreds of dollars, even though no one was actually put at risk during the incident. These cameras can be used to spy and track people all through town using facial recognition software and should be banned as an effort to stop the emproaching police state control grid.
