fcb, you seem to be missing the point. I am sure that the company that supplies these guns initially calibrated them and may possibly include a recalibrating service as part of the contract. Do I know that for sure, no but it would be a interesting tidbit of info. Remember, the more money collected, the more the company receives.
The point is that anytime you have a company being paid a percentage of fines collected you have a suspect agreement. We will see how well it all holds up in court. Hasn't held up in many instances in Florida. I am a Florida resident so I am well aware of the issues there.

I might add that anyone ticketed should challenge the ticket since without being physically stopped, the officer in most cases can not identify the driver.
I do not condone speeding but I do not condone scams either.

grazor50, you posted exactly what I was going to post. A number of Florida cities were signing up with these traffic light camera companies who not only controlled the traffic light cameras but it appeared to also be controlling the timing of the yellow lights. Would these companies tend to shorten the yellow light cycle since the more fines generated, the more they received. The fact that they could not ID the driver got a lot of these fines thrown out and even the red light cameras removed.
It is just common sense that anytime a company is paid for a service based on revenue collected that it is in their best interest to try to generate as much revenue as possible.

So if the ignition switch shut off while the vehicle was in motion, the airbags would be disabled. Rather stupid I would say. I guess if the vehicle crashes without the engine running the occupants would not be injured. I should of realized that!

I guess the word shenanigan which is a common cartoon expression is appropriate when referring to Belinky.

The second part of your post is not exactly correct NoBS. If you read it again you will see that the repaving is going to be between Hitchcock and Tippecanoe road where the widening will be between Hitchcock and Market street. Two different stretches of road.
That being said, after the pavers grind the surface, they end up with places that have level and also low spots. So then when you lay a inch of new asphalt on the surface and then roll it, the spots that were low do not compact to the same compression as the level areas. Guess which areas of asphalt will be the first to lift in a couple years. The right way to do this is to fill and roll the low spots and then resurface the entire road. This is just common sense but it would mean less frequent resurfacing and that is money out of the paver's pockets.
You would think that the people selecting the pavers would look at their track records to decide who gets to bid. I will leave it at that....

In the course of removing this dam, they will be stirring up toxic sediment that has been there since the old steel mill days. They are not going to be able to capture all of it. I wonder what the down stream communities will think of this?
