HELP END THE RED-LIGHT CAMERA RIP-OFF!
We need people to come speak at City Hall tomorrow!!
This could be decided by one vote.
The council needs to hear from real citizens who oppose the cameras.
The company buses in people to speak on their behalf. Don’t let them fool the Council.
You can really make a difference!
Join us as we go to City Hall and tell our elected officials — NO CONTRACT EXTENSION KILL THE RED LIGHT CAMERA PROGRAM—
When: Tuesday, June 21st
Time: 10 am (Item could be heard anytime up till about 1 or 2 pm)
Where: LA City Hall – Main St. between 1st and Temple. John Ferraro Council Chamber, Room 340,
Each member of the public will be given 1 – 2 minutes to address the council, so we need many people to show up. We can supply you with talking points or you can choose your own words. Trust me when I tell you that the camera company is planning to pack the room with their supporters like they did on Friday. Please join us and be part of the political process. If the council members don’t hear from you, they will think you support this waste of taxpayer dollars. If you are thinking of going, contact us so we can coordinate.
See our friend Wolfie speaking at the last City Council Meeting

Effect of Extending PRL Contract for 1 year

Loss To Local Economy: $4,290,000.00+ (In ticket costs alone)
No Improvement in Safety (Accidents were eliminated by original engineering countermeasures, Cameras not put at most dangerous intersections)
75% of Tickets for Rolling Right Turns (97% at some intersection approaches)*
