Re: Will Queens Bus Redesign really speed things up?

But so here we hit on an interesting conflation.
People who want speed cameras for the purpose of safety are too few to just get the laws passed however they like. Are there other politicians that will support the law if it can be used to also collect money? If so, should the people who want the cameras for safety reject the offer of support from those who want them for revenue and ignore their deep-seated concern for safety in order to not tarnish the optics of the law? No, they are going to compromise to get safety however they can get safety.
But you can't wholesale pretend like no one wants the cameras for safety just because the optics make it look a certain way to some people.
Same as the people who want congestion pricing for the reduction in vehicles compromising and allowing the funds collected to be used in multitudinous ways they're not happy with because at least it moves things in the right direction of fewer vehicles driving around the main business areas.
Should we throw the baby out with the bathwater unless everything is done perfectly the first time?
