LAPD seeks to extend its agreement with American Traffic Solutions. A new contract with another Arizona-based firm is also in consideration.
Two much-debated City Hall issues are expected to converge this week when the Los Angeles Police Department's red light camera program moves to the front of the line for an exemption from the city's contracting boycott of Arizona over that state's new immigration enforcement law.

You’re right. Of course it is.
These people are shameless. They’re all for this bogus boycott of AZ until it might impact their revenue stream. Seems shaking down drivers is more important than their “principles”.
They are perfectly willing to stand on principle as long as it doesn’t cost them any principal.
“significant benefit to public safety.”
