Opposition lining up for "Janet Cams"

Set your cruise control. As Capitol Ideas so keenly points out, the latest on the "Janet Cams" is that they are going to nab any speeder that travels 10 miles over the limit. The current cameras go off an 11 mph standard, but its being moved down in hopes to catch more speeders. Let's hope that the photo radar tickets will come with Hallmark cards thanking them for boosting the general fund by $210 million.

It also looks like several groups are lining up in opposition to the speed cameras. AAA and the insurance people are already coming out against and the trucking association has their concerns as well. Naturally, the people who deal with drivers and cars are going to be on the forefront of this issue. It will be interesting to see if other people take up arms against the cameras. Our bet is that it won't be until people actually start getting tickets in the mail that they will start paying attention.
