Photo radar and the budget

Councillor Given is not pleased that there are fewer speeders in the Okanagan. Either that or she believes the RCMP are not doing their jobs in catching them.

During budged deliberations she is quoted as saying: “As a way to offset the loss of more than $300,000 in traffic fine revenue shared by the province, Councillor. Gail Given brought up the motorists four-letter word, 'photo radar.”

"If we were putting more effort to traffic speed regulation, we may see more of those revenues come back to us."

So now tell me it is not just about the money. I say Cash Grab.
