A good bill which Beeber's group is sponsoring, AB 612, has conversely proceeeded on its course to becoming law. AB 612 would legnthen the yellow light for one second at all intersections with red light cameras. This has been shown to reduce red-light running and to also reduce rear-end accidents, which have been proven to increase whenever red light cameras are installed. In the past, many cities have been caught illegally shortening the lenth of yelow lights in order to increase the number of red-light camera citations, thus increasing the revenue they collect. AB 612 [PDF here] is a great proposal and Jay Beeber, Executive Director of SaferStreetsLA.org and StopAB666.org, is to be highly commended for his important work.
As we reported May 13, revenue data indicates that residents of Southern California are starting to pay red-light camera tckets issued in Los Angeles County again, despite the fact that law enforcement and County officials have admitted that they are no longer enforcing non payment of such citations. Back in February, John Shanahan beat his fourth traffic ticket through the mail, the latest being a red-light camera ticket issued in Corona, Ca. Remember it's always your option to fight your ticket in court and save your hard-earned money. See our traffic ticket victory archives and red light camera section for more info.
Below is a copy of the message Beeber sent out to his mailing list regarding the defeat of AB 666.
As many of you may have heard, we have successfully stopped AB666, the Devil's Bill... for now. The author of the bill, Assemblymember Bob Wieckowski, pulled the bill from consideration before it could be heard in committee. We're pretty sure he did this due to all the opposition we generated and he knew the bill was destined for defeat. This could not have happened without your help and support. When you signed the petition opposing AB666 and made those calls to Wieckowski's office, you made your voice heard loud and clear that this camera company scheme to eliminate your rights would not be tolerated. I can't tell you how awe inspiring your response was to this horrendous assault on the people of California. I thank you all.
For those of you who were kind enough to make a donation, I and the people of this state thank you from the bottoms of our hearts. Rest assured that your money was put to good use. I traveled to Sacramento twice last month to meet with our state representatives to tell them first hand how terrible this bill would be for the people they were hired to represent. I also met with other groups to solidify our opposition. And we had a full range of groups taking a stance in opposition including the AAA, Teamsters, California Association of Highway Patrolmen, Police Officers Research Association of California, California Truckers Association, California Construction Trucking Association and the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. You may note that many of these groups are rarely on the same side of an issue and the fact that we all came together to stop AB666 is testament to how truly awful the Devil's Bill was and is.
Not Over Yet
But our work is not over. The Assembly rules allow Assemblymember Wieckowski another chance to revive this bill in January for next year's session. We have to be prepared for that and should he make the terrible decision to bring the Devil's Bill back to life, we will need your help once again to stop him. Although we now have over 4000 signatures on the petition, we could always use more. The members of the legislature who we spoke to were very impressed with the response we were able to generate and it certainly made an impact. So forward the URL of our website www.StopAB666.org to whoever you know and ask them to sign. Think how impressed our elected officials will be when we have 5000 or 10,000 signatures. In the meantime, we will work diligently to get the word out about AB666 to all the other members of the Legislature so they know the harm this bill would cause to citizen's rights.
The Good News
I also wanted to mention a bit of good news. Our bill, AB612, to add 1 second of yellow time to traffic signals at photo enforced intersections passed both the Assembly Transportation Committee and the full Assembly on unanimous votes. It is rare to get this type of total agreement on anything in Sacramento and we are pleased that the members of the Assembly recognize the important safety improvements that will come with the bill's passage. The bill now goes to the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee and then on to the full Senate. Then we have to get the Governor to sign it. You might think that this measure that will reduce red light running by up to 90% in many instances would be a no-brainer. But the camera companies, as they always do, have been out in force telling lies about the bill and drumming up opposition. One group, the California Police Chiefs Association has made the unconscionable decision to oppose the bill. These are the people we hire to keep us safe and yet, although they won't admit it, they have decided to put revenue concerns above your safety. We just thought you'd want to know that. As we move forward with the bill we may call on you to send some emails and make some phone calls. Your voice could be critical in getting this bill into law and we hope we can count on you to speak up when the time comes.
In closing, we again want to thank you for your support. When they tell you "You Can't Fight City Hall", you can now say, "Oh yes you can. And we won". We hope you will wish to continue to be a part of the people's movement we've started and choose to continue to receive our periodic updates. Please know that we will never spam you or sell your information to anyone else. And we won't fill your inbox with emails day after day. When something important comes up, we will certainly let you know, otherwise you can just visit our websites at www.StopAB666.org and www.SaferStreetsLA.org to see what's going on. Of course if you choose to remove yourself from this list, we certainly respect your decision. We hope you don't choose to do that but if you must, the instructions about how to do that appear below.
Again we thank you for standing up for yourself and the other citizens of California.
P.S. Look for our follow-up email regarding Tuesday's upcoming election in Los Angeles.
