The NZ Herald reports that the AA motoring affairs general manager Mike Noon said the trial results of red light cameras showed there was “no reason to delay rolling out the cameras throughout the country any longer”.
“Red-light cameras have proved themselves – they work, they are cost effective and they have public support,” he said. “The AA can see no reason not to act now and use these cameras to make our city intersections safer for all road users.”
The AA claims to represent the interests of NZ motorists. Apparently it is staffed by big government toadies who like the left, believe that any perceived problem can be solved by bigger and more heavy handed government. For years they have pandered to every Orwellian idea that government has come up with.
The cost of owning a car has increased greatly, and the pleasure of motoring has been greatly diminished by a plethora of petty rules and regulations. The AA should have been resisting these moves and not applauding them as they have done on so many occasions, and on this occasion with red light cameras.
The AA are big government toadies who have betrayed motorists to Agenda 21 and other sinister socialist ideas. My advice to motorists is to stop funding these left wing boot lickers and start a new organisation. One that stands up for motorists and does not betray them to self serving oligarchs like Auckland Transport road safety manager Karen Hay.
Whats the bet the sniveling little boot licking socialist weasel Mike Noon has absolutely no knowledge that there is a counter argument to the use of red light cameras. The National Motorist’s Association in the USA is a real car owners pressure group. See “10 Reasons To Oppose Red-Light Cameras“
