This truly IS about money. If they wanted to make it "safer" and stop "speeders" this idea would have been thought of a long time ago. Sorry that you guys are broke, but don't take it out on the taxpayers who pay for you in the first place.

Ah just forget about it and let a-- holes drive as fast as they want! So what if it brings in revenue at least citations are being issued ! People here bitch and complain about everything! If they put up speed cameras its wrong, if the Police patrol and enforced speeding and traffic laws people complain! Shut up already you idiots!

I'm all for the police doing their job but to stand in a ditch with a speed radar gun? It just looks desperate and I look up to the police as I'm over 30! They should drive up and down 59 to know what is going on and give tickets that are warranted. How can you take a police officer seriously when they are standing in a ditch in front of a church? I could be wrong but as a resident for over 25 years the ditch is not the way. Our only hope now is that they made a ton of money and our taxes will go down or a great charity will benefit:)

It's safer to stand off to the side of the road doing radar! Once he gets a speeder he calls it in to a squad down the road that will stop the car! Why would you even do 30 over? Like I said I'm all for speed cameras on Rt.59!
