I will be calling State Sen. Rene Garcia's office on Friday to find out if they know any particulars that would be helpful to know.
His district office phone number is (305) 364-3100
In the absence of an organized event closer to many of us here in this part of southeast Broward County, it would seem common sense to me that the eastern sidewalk along U.S.-1, south of Hallandale Beach -right near the first red-light camera erected in Hallandale Beach- would seem the best location for such an event.
It also offers a highly-visible location with an infinite supply of people driving by who will be in support of repealing the current red-light camera law, which, sadly for residents of Hallandale Beach, the city is clearly exploiting for revenue purposes.
And when you think about it, is there really a red-light camera location in South Florida more infamous than this one?
In a word, "NO!"
As you know from my previous posts here, and some very fair-minded articles in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the Broward County Commission will be voting on Tuesday on the issue of the current law being repealed by the Florida legislature.
The bill in the State House to repeal is Bill 4087, which was filed by State Rep. Richard Corcoran, R-New Port Richey, and the companion in the State Senate is Senate Bill 672, filed by Sen. Garcia, whose district is based out of Hialeah.
