Boycott the Blueberry Fest until the Red Light Cameras come down!
The red light cameras have been proven to be a major safety issue by USF in a 2012 study, and the cameras are nothing more then a way for the City of Brooksville to fleece its citizens and the people of Hernando County out of their hard earned money.
Click here to read about the University of South Florida study which proves that red light cameras are deadly devices that increase rear-end accidents and only exist to bring in extra revenue for the government. The study also points out a glaring fact that 99% of all red light running violations (i.e. the act of running a red light) are manufactured issues by local governments, so they can argue the case to bring in a camera.
You see the local government needs more money for top level salaries and benefits so they start looking for new revenue sources, and since government does not make anything it has to figure a way out to fleece the tax payers without them knowing it.
In the case of red light cameras the local governments order the local Public Works people, or the Sheriffs Office to set the caution light timers to the bare minimum allotted amount of time. This in turn creates a timing issue with the traffic lights which causes normal safe drivers to run red lights, which causes traffic accidents, and or fatalities that would have otherwise never occurred.
In essence the government is causing people to run red lights by tampering with the timing of the traffic lights, which in turn actually causes accidents and actual freaking deaths!!!
Maybe you pro-Red Light ratards should read that again and let it sink in reaaaaaal gooood.
Since there are government created traffic accidents, and then fatalities, the government then offers a government solution to this problem which is a red light camera program solution to a fake fabricated government created safety problem.
In any event we are joining the growing Blueberry Festival Boycott which is a Facebook based project that has the support of some current sitting County Commissioners, School Board Members, previous Hernando political candidates, and many other very notable Hernandoians.
So to the City of Brooksville… if you read this you need to take down the cameras now. We the people of Hernando WANT to get Brooksville back on her feet and thriving again, and these cameras, along with your inept leadership are slowly killing the City.
