I’ve heard some grumbling from Republicans about Janet Napolitano’s plan to raise revenue by installing more cameras to catch speeders. Frankly, I ain’t exactly comfortable with thinking of this as a possible revenue source either.
But, the complaining about this part of the plan would be a little easier for folks like me to handle if it wasn’t coming from people that are pushing for Russell Pearce’s budget plan that contains a $45 hike in fees for people taking defensive driving classes. So, the governor wants more speeders to have to pay for tickets, while the Republicans want people to have to pay more when they get those tickets. Yeah, I can see that the Republicans, once again, have the moral and constitutional high ground.
