Re: “The Tucson Weekly 2015 Endorsements

Yes on 201. Yes I am one that got caught after 35 years without and accident or ticket. Politics has a lot to do with this system. What I did was not come to a complete stop on a right turn and when I not come to a complete stop I am talking snails actually moving faster. So while I would say yes, I did not come to a complete stop which of course I was not ticketed for, I did get a ticket for running a red light. The only reason that this is 'running a red light' now is for increased revenue. You now have a choice of fighting the ticket and 99.9 % chance of losing, just paying the ticket of 334$ or going to traffic school for 234$. Only the traffic school will not create an increase in your insurance rates. My rates would go up 40 bucks a month on something that did not really happen. Yep time to get rid of these things.
I often wonder how many accidents actually happened outside of the intersection itself with people trying to figure out whether or not it was okay to still proceed.

Time to get rid of them and let the public deal with human beings the police like it use to be. Let judgment actually be a factor again. Let the police officers decide between the letter of the law and the spirit of the law.

Re: “Tucson Sun Tran Strikers: Day 9 in Images

I have ridden the bus for about 2 years now, if the previous poster thinks bus drivers are bad, maybe he should take a trip in the bus to see what perfect drivers the public is. I am amazed there have not been more accidents, not because of the buses but the drivers cutting off the buses. I will bet the 24 dollars an hour is only for the senior drivers. Last year this strike happened and they were able to get the younger drivers an increase in the starting pay. Think about this, last year the starting pay was about 5 dollars an hour less than the garbage truck drivers were making (nothing against the drivers of the garbage trucks). Seems a little unbalanced considering the fact that human lives are in the hands of the bus drivers (and you should see the crap they have to put up with). You do what you need to, to help yourselves and your family.

Re: “Martha McSally Might Be in Trouble Over Missing Info in Her Campaign Bookkeeping

Re: “The Skinny

"and to my eye the call was marginal but the end result was no different than if a traffic cop had caught me."

You may be correct but since you said to your eye this was marginal maybe an officer judgement would not have caused you be issued a ticket.

Re: “McSally Calls Iran Agreement a "Dangerous Deal" While Grijalva Sees "Triumph of International Relations"

"Iraq is being taken today as we speak."

Really, apparently destabilizing Iraq with war has nothing to do with what is happening there today.

How long were we suppose to be there?

If I remember correctly the last administration stated that this was not going to be another Vietnam. I didn't see much difference except fewer loss of American life. One loss is too much for the wrong reason.
