 IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM LAST YEAR'S
STOP Red Light Cameras Committee
concede this year.
  
The People Lose… Again.

Friends and Volunteers,

    As you have undoubtedly heard by now, our petition to bring red light and traffic cameras to a vote of the people of Toledo was rejected by the City Clerk as insufficient because each circulator did not notarize their signature on each individual part-petition.    

    This is the declaratory statement where, under the threat of felonious election fraud, the circulator states they personally witnessed each person sign, and that each person who signed is, to the best of their knowledge, the person they purported to be and was qualified to sign, and finally the total number of signatures on that individual part-petition. This is the second time this year the will of the people has been thwarted by the details of election law – which is not to imply details aren’t important, but the people deserve better. 

   Our legal team feels horrible they missed this extraneous and unnecessary step that most cities in Ohio do not require.  This has only served to strengthen our resolve, and we hope next year when we issue a clarion call for patriots to retake civil liberty, you will respond. 

   The We Demand A Vote Coalition recognizes Toledo's unique requirement for, and regrets we did not notarize each circulator's names on the Red Light Camera petition.  It is disappointing, and we apologize to all of our hard working volunteers who petitioned selflessly to put this on the ballot. 

   We are, however, undeterred in our resolve to bring this issue to the people.  We shall not be defeated by the forces of bureaucracy, and shall return next year to give the people of Toledo the right to vote on Traffic Cameras, because despite this temporary set-back, We Demand A Vote!

Seven great reasons to oppose Red light and speeding cameras in Toledo     

  1.  Red light and speeding cameras posted throughout the city are further erosions of our civil liberties as our own government has resorted to 24/7 spying on the citizenry to “catch” every perceived transgression.
     

  1.  Red light and speeding cameras are pure money grabs by rapacious government officials.  The City of Toledo estimates that 2009 revenue from the cameras will be $2.5 million for the City alone.  That’s not $2.5 million in revenue from wealthy citizens and businesses, but rather from hard-working Toledoans struggling to make ends meet.
     

  1. The City renegotiated fines from $95 to $120, changing the city's cut to 55%.   Monies from the red light and speeding cameras are split on a "percent of the  take" basis with the private camera operators.   In Toledo, contractor RedFlex gets 45% of all ticketing revenues.   That will be more than $2 Million Dollars in revenue to RedFlex just in 2009.
     

  1.  This private profit motivation has resulted in shortening of yellow-light times at red light camera intersections to entrap unsuspecting motorists and increase ticket revenues.
     

  1.  Red light cameras are not motivated by a desire for increased public safety.  Rather, multiple studies have shown that red light cameras actually increase the number of accidents, because motorists suddenly brake when approaching a red light intersection.
     

  1.  The party liable for the ticket is not the claimed offender – the driver – but rather the owner of the car, even if they can establish conclusively that they were not driving.
     

  1.  Most pernicious of all, in order to develop an efficient enforcement scheme, the City has abandoned traditional constitutional protections of the accused.  Under their scheme, there is a presumption of guilt and no right to compel the testimony of witnesses in one’s defense.  Indeed, until recently, trials on claimed violations were conducted in secret with the public and members of the media not permitted to attend.

  Please grab back our dignity, take back our civil rights and ban red light and speeding cameras in Toledo.  The option is yours.     For more  information, please visit:
