Letter: Child Safety Or Money Grubbing?

I can imagine that here in Nassau County, where everything seems to go wrong, that the school zone cameras will become a reality. The ball however, is in the hands of the people who can either plan their routes so that they don’t pass by any schools or if it says 20 mph, creep through at 10 mph just to be safe. The streets have no minimum speed limit. Chances are 50 percent that the next light will be red anyway. What’s the rush?

 

It is up to us to insure that not one summons ever gets issued. Then, they would be saying “Those ‘creeps’ are scheming our scam.” After all the expense, they would not make a dime.

Those cameras would disappear fast. It is all about the money. The children’s safety has nothing to do with it.
