Although I understand the cameras being at many busy intersections (for accident purposes), I ran into a situation on Cortez Rd in Manatee Co. a year ago this past Christmas where they had 2 intersections where the timing on the lights had been changed to increase the amount of revenue. My son from Bradenton was taking me to a Christmas get-together with his extended family and was waiting to turn left when the light almost immediately from yellow to red. I got a ticket for $150+ with a camera picture (even though I wasn't even driving). If you contested the ticket it was $500+. I am on an extremely tight budget (S.S. only as I have already lost everything in the recession).....I went ahead & paid for am not happy with it.....many counties in FL have reversed this scheme.......I sure could use that $150+ about now......5 months ago
Shame, shame, shame on the City of Venice!!! This was on the local news tonight and I couldn't believe what I was hearing. The Foundation to save the Ringling Circus Arena has been working tirelessly to save his wonderful place. Everyone who is from the Venice Area or remembers the Ringing Circus should throw a big fit!!!! Totally unbelievable! Thanks!Feb 13, 2013
