Denver Direct: Red Light “Collection Machine”
Tuesday, January 4, 2011
The issue of extending the “Red Light” contract came up at last night’s City Council meeting. As usual, only Jeanne Faatz was on the job, requesting more information on the accident reports at the intersections under surveillance.
Aurora has similar installations and, praise be, a citizens group (CRAG) trying to monitor the use of these cameras as revenue generating machines for the city.
