Re: Will Queens Bus Redesign really speed things up?

The problem with getting the money people involved is this: Imagine if a set of cameras worked perfectly well in that no one speeded and therefore the cameras did not make a single cent. The safety people would support keeping the cameras as being successful for their goals, while the money people would want them taken down as they don't generate revenue. What would end up happening is that the cameras would end up getting installed where they are completely unnecessary for safety, but could maximize revenue.

I'm pro congestion charging because the charge itself causes the benefit, regardless of where it goes. IOW, if the congestion charge is too effective, revenue is still maximized.
