Default Virginia Senator Takes Money From Cameras, Introduces Bill For More Of Them

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/63/6396.asp

Virginia state senator takes campaign cash from ATS then passes bill to allow freeway speed cameras.

"By a 22 to 18 vote, the Virginia Senate on Thursday decided to bring speed cameras to most of the state's freeways. State Senator Bill Carrico (R-Galax), a recipient of campaign funds from camera provider American Traffic Solutions (ATS), authored the legislation to give state police the ability to set up fully automated cameras on highways marked as construction zones, whether or not any actual work was being done. Private companies like ATS would issue the $125 tickets to motorists accused of traveling 12 MPH over speed limits that have already been lowered by 10 MPH.

Carrico, a former state trooper, serves as chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee which also on Wednesday adopted a companion measure, Senate Bill 917, to bring speed cameras to the commonwealth's side streets. If enacted, any local jurisdiction would be able to set up automated ticketing machines "within the vicinity of a school" that would activate at 37 MPH."
