In 2001 when photo radar first popped up on the scene in Manitoba, the CTF cautioned it would turn into a cash-cow, our concerns have now rung true.
From today's Winnipeg Sun:
"Photo radar is now officially a cash grab.
I know some people have viewed it as such from the very beginning, including the Canadian Taxpayers' Federation, which said five years ago that no good could come of photo radar.
They argued politicians couldn't be trusted with this kind of potential money maker. And as sure as the day is long, they would abuse it, the CTF argued.
They were right. And I -- a longtime supporter of photo enforcement -- was wrong."
