Easy Money

If Danny Jones needs to raise money for the city of Charleston, instead of jacking everyone around with a user fee (taxation without representation), he should just send a policeman down to the intersection of Greenbrier and Washington to catch people running the stop lights. (that is, making right turns on red without stopping and against the walk signals) I’m sure the city would earn enough to pave the streets.

Speaking of which, when are they going to do some street and sidewalk work in the East End? The sidewalks are a hazard near the Capitol, and there’s holes where they dug in the street and haven’t finished paving it back over. But I digress.

The problem, of course, with sending a policeman out to catch drivers doing real illegal and dangerous acts, is that it’s harder than sitting a police cruiser along the interstate with a radar gun. (I noticed this weekend that South Charleston police were making use of the hillside at the Montrose exit to hide their radar cars.) It seems the cities believe the state (and federal government) built the nice big highway through town to serve as a personal cash cow for the city coffer. Should it really be the city’s job to enforce the speed limit on a highway they don’t control, especially when they take user fees from citizens to pave the streets they’re NOT patrolling?

I forgot, Danny wants to install cameras to spy on everyone so the police don’t have to patrol the streets.

    Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have
    no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance
    from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly
    appreciated!
