Photo radar: They’re grabbing our cash

Re: Wynne says cities pushed for return of photo radar, Nov. 9.

Ah, the cookie jar. If we could only trust our municipal politicians to keep their greedy fingers out of it. Photo radar in school zones – it is all about the kids, isn’t it? We have, after all, a pandemic of kids getting hit by vehicles in Ottawa school zones. Or was it people stabbed near the market? Or bikers hit on bike lanes? I could find plenty about the latter, one report about the former. But what do I know?
