A friend forwarded to me a note from a member of the Albany Common Council. The councilperson was reaching out to individuals with concerns about traffic safety and in particular red light running. It got my attention, as I am fully behind adding the cameras.
The Council’s Public Safety Committee meets this Tuesday, September 23, at 5:30pm in the courtroom, 2nd floor of City Hall, to discuss the Red Light Camera legislation currently being considered by the Council. The Council is encouraging individuals who are supportive of red light cameras to attend and speak out during the public comment period. There will most likely be others speaking out against red light cameras so the hope is to present a balanced view of the issue. If you cannot attend, please consider writing an email to the entire Council through their Legislative Aide, Cashawna Parker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to be there. You?
