IF YOU HATE RED LIGHT CAMERAS, YOU’D THANK CARLOS GIMENEZ FOR THEM
Carlos Gimenez as Miami-Dade Commissioner sponsored and voted for the intrusive red-light cameras at traffic intersections. Not only that. Every year Gimenez urged Tallahassee legislators to allow red light cameras. By now it is very clear, government bureaucrats saw red-light cameras as their sacred cash cows. They claimed it was for “safety” but we all know it was a money grab scheme.
