Red light camera pact would need exemption from Arizona boycott [ LA means hypocrisy En espaņol ]

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.

On Tuesday, the City Council is scheduled to consider — and appears likely to approve — an exception to the boycott allowing a 10-month extension of a multimillion-dollar agreement with Scottsdale-based American Traffic Solutions.

The firm operates cameras at 32 city intersections that catch tens of thousands of red light violators each year. The council's Public Safety Committee says the exception is justified because red light cameras provide a "significant benefit to public safety."

Los Angels Councilmen want their pesos.

They will set aside their beliefs in a heart beat for cash.

A boycott with exceptions is not a boycott.

“A boycott with exceptions is not a boycott.”

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.
