Letter: Child Safety Or Money Grubbing?

I can imagine in Nassau County, where everything seems to go wrong, that school zone cameras will become a reality. The ball is in the hands of the people who can plan their routes so they don’t pass by schools or if it says 20 mph, creep through at 10 mph just to be safe. Chances are good that next light will be red anyway. What’s the rush? It’s up to us to ensure that not one summons ever gets issued.

Then, they would say “those creeps are scheming our scam.” After all the expense, they would not make a dime.

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