Letter: Adding speed registers near cameras was a good move by Laurel officials
Several of my letters characterizing speed cameras as "legalized robbery" have been published in the Laurel Leader. My contention is that if the city were truly and primarily concerned about the "safety of the kids," then the city should put up blinking lights to alert motorists to slow down. For without the blinking lights, the net affect would be revenue for the city and a hidden tax on the citizens because the cameras alone do not adequately warn the driver of potential pedestrian danger.
