Mayor & City Council of Shaker Heights Ohio: Do Not recommend Red Light Cameras in Shaker Heights, Ohio!

1. Studies show cities choose this solution for reasons of revenue not safety
2. The "for profit" company selected to administer this option will have control over revenue and we're really only going "into business" with an enterprise with the label of "safety" to support an outside company's revenue. This is not consistent with city government functions. 
3. This effort will hurt economic development efforts to attract new business and hurt local merchants who rely on our gateways of steady traffic for business which in turn helps our local community.
4. The cameras are usually placed in areas of lower income thus unfairly "tax" people who can least afford to pay. The areas suggested in an earlier planning session, will bear this out in Shaker Heights.
