    Because speeding is Center Point’s main problem…

    Please put more cameras on 23rd NE. Speeding getting out of hand since they repaved our street.

    I love the people who complain about this. It’s simple don’t speed, don’t run red lights and stop at stop signs, is that so hard.

    Center point going to make a lot of money from all these bad drivers.

    This is not about safety, this is about revenue. I agree with the statement about not speeding or running a stop sign/red light. But when the city was shut down the first time they made sure they created a public safety position so that there is someone in place to review footage and shelved the program until after the municipal elections. Center Point is all about safety, as long as it makes them money. Far more people are robbed, assaulted or killed in CP than are the victims of serious traffic accidents, yet the Council and Mayor are opposed to a police force.. Lets just call this what it is and be done with it.

    Waiting to see if yellow light time is reduced to trap drivers. Research it . Done for revenue not safety. All about the $$$$.

    Um, doesn’t Center Point have more important problems to deal with than traffic? Just saying…

    Let’s see. A for profit company,redflex, is installing cameras that the majority of the revenue goes to them…I wonder who is in charge of calibrating the system…I bet it’s redflex.

    Scott Buttram, have you all done any research on whether or not a private company can enforce traffic tickets written (especially being issued to a vehicle owner rather than the driver) or are they just counting on people just paying?

    Kevin Small

    Also, do you know the profit margin for the private company?

    We know the state law was changed to accommodate the use of cameras, but we don’t have all the details on that, yet.

    They won’t last long in center point. Either someone will steal them or shoot them down…

    Wouldn’t red light cameras be considered unconstitutional under the 6th amendment?

    Shawna Chapman Ragland

    LoL I stirred enough trouble for the first time…. maybe we should put Jerry on it since he is retired! Too bad people voted these crooks back into office.

    Just another revenue raising scheme…put cops out there writing tickets and create more jobs…police presence equals less crime ….oh and you will raise your revenue

    Tyler Franklin

    Were you aware the the 4 police officers that Center Point contracts out are not there to write tickets and prevent crime, but to serve citations for things like grass to high and too many cars in your yard? True story!

    If Center Point can’t afford to hire cops to patrol and protect the public then Center Point as a city should dissolve back into unincorporated Jefferson County…

    Broke again Center Point sharing proceeds with a 3 rd party vendor. Nothing like a city full of traffic cameras to bring in customers to your remaining businesses
