Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn Ya
Those controversial red-light cameras just keep on coming.
The city of Fort Worth tell us that nine more red-light cameras will be added to the 25 cameras already scattered around Fort Worth.
In the past, cities that wanted to pad their budgets had to raise taxes. Now you just plop a camera at an intersection and watch the money roll in — without having to pay a cop to do the work.
It’s genius. And infuriating.
Cameras at selected intersections capture red-light violations on video and take still photographs of license plates. The city then issues violations to motorists who enter intersections after signal lights turn red.
Camera locations to be added Oct. 1 are:
Northbound South Hulen Street at Southwest Loop 820 East Service Road
Southbound South Hulen Street at Southwest Loop 820 East Service Road
Eastbound Trinity Boulevard at State Highway 360
Westbound Trinity Boulevard at State Highway 360
Southbound McCart Avenue at Altamesa Boulevard

Eastbound East Berry Street at I-35 Service Road
Westbound East Berry Street at I-35 Service Road
