Does Michigan Actually Have Any Red Light Cameras?

For starters, Michigan does not have any red-light cameras. Most of the traffic cameras that are used in the state are used to monitor traffic speeds by motorists and are non-recording cameras.

You probably don't even know what the camera looks like if you're from the state of Michigan, not unless you've seen National Treasure.

If We Have No Red Light Cameras, Why Make Them Illegal?

A Republican senator from Brighton, proposed a new bill to make the cameras illegal in the state of Michigan, believing that they could be an infringement on motorists' rights.

“Red light cameras are not about motorist safety,” said Senator Lana Theis told WILX. “What’s more important, red-light cameras violate motorists’ constitutional rights... Red light cameras are the definition of government overreach, and we should keep them off our streets.”

The proposition to ban the lights falls along the lines of infringing on two amendments. Theis believes that the cameras go against both the fifth and sixth amendments, which are the right to due process (fifth), and the right to confront an accuser (sixth).

Does anybody else spend way too much time scrolling endlessly through Facebook Marketplace?

I'm not in the market for anything but somehow I just end up looking through things that local folks have for sale.

Like Kelly. Kelly and my wife have something in common because they love, love, love the color pink. I'd be tempted to buy it for her if she didn't love her very-much non-pink SUV.
