Don't worry y'all, Tim Ryan will make up for all the wrongs of the valley's morally corrupt democrat politicians!!! I am sure that when ever something good happens in the area Tim Ryan will have his face on every news camera in the area. If you ask him (Tim Ryan), V&M Star Steel or Vallorec whatever it's called now would not be here if it wasn't for the valley's democrats??!!!

Good for these guys! Lets hope the fame doesn't go to their heads like all the rest. We would go to the Oaks on Tuesdays between classes at YSU (13 years ago). I would go today, but I am still bitter over the city for installing traffic cameras and I do not want any of my sales tax revenue going to the city. It's a drop in the bucket but it's a moral thing. But seriously good for these guys, it's refreshing to hear something on TV about Youngstown that doesn't have to do with old cars and over weight dudes making bad jokes on TV lol =)

You're right, you shouldn't speed, but when the contacted company that provides the city with its cameras gets a cut of the fines, like any business of course they are going to try and increase profit any way they can. Photoman stated it correctly by telling people to travel 5 mph below the speed limit. I would even suggest going at least 10 mpg below the posted limit.

The bad thing about Optotraffic is, they have been sued before for uncalibrated radar guns. They attempted to ticket a school teacher leaving work and clocked him going 58 in a 20 mph zone. The teacher being a Psychics teacher went to court and proved successfully it was impossible and against all logic that his 1997 Honda civic could get from 0 to 58 mph's in 20 feet! LOL so they had to take the camera's out. There is a product you can buy online for about $50.00 that will make your plate invisible to speed camera's. I used this product when I lived in Columbus (They have red light camera's.) And it worked!! To look at your license plate in plan day you cannot tell you have it on, but try to take a picture of your plate with the shield on it will make the picture blurry and unreadable! Happy motoring =)

I just hope local organizations will still use print media to advertize and invite people to events. Too many events rely solely on Facebook to promote. Social media is good, not great, but good. However, there are those of us who like me just didn't see the point in having a Facebook anymore. Instead of liking my post, send me a text. Instead of replying to a picture I posted, call me and discuss current events. But that's just me getting older and I am not a millennial so I don't feel the NEED to be connected 24/7.

I deleted my Facebook after having it since 2004 and I must say I really feel at ease!!!! I always felt anxious if I didn't check my news feed at least three or four times day. So, I cut the cord, and feel great! I did not just deactivate it, I deleted the entire page permanently. Now you can find in real life;)

When I was a student at YSU back in 2000 through 2005, we were told not to stop at the red lights at night down town leaving campus because of the car jackings. We were told this as students who commuted into town for classes. So, now the police wants to enforce speeding instead of enforce laws against drugs, and dog fighting rings (which are rampant through Youngstown and neighboring communities) Yes, lets enforce speeding. How many people were killed in the last year from speeding in Youngstown as compared to drugs or shootings? Yes, lets enforce speeding. LOL This city is laughable. And when people have a choice to avoid the city and take another route, guaranteed they will. We'll see what the city does when businesses downtown start complaining of monthly losses by people avoiding cameras that we are too trust will be accurate LOL. If they want to be serious about crime fighting lets find the people responsible for the bate dogs found in the city the other day. Youngstown makes me sick! Which is why I don't live there, and why I don't pay taxes there, and is why I don't do any sort of business in Youngstown.

Yes Vindicator lets all promote $5.00 per gallon gas so Tim Ryan can boast about bringing jobs back to the Valley.

That will be an interesting article. I have always wondered about this as well. Seems each year the traffic is worse and worse, while at the same time we have less population than we did 10 years ago.

As I said earlier this event is no longer a family friendly event. The promoters are more about the concerts than they are about the cars. The gate fees are outrageous, half the kids don't even know who Bret Michaels and Warrant are lol. The fairgrounds banned these guys and Quaker should as well..
