Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Roger Lohse's amazing story on red-light cameras in South Florida -city attorneys drop cases against drivers due to fears of law's constitutionality

The great Roger Lohse story at Channel 10/WPLG-TV Miami on red-light cameras from two weeks ago that really got LOTS of people's full attention because it revealed that many South Florida cities were NOT contesting drivers in court who'd been issued citations, because of their fear that the law used would be ruled unconstitutional.
"Of the 199 cases he counted, there were only eight convictions. The bulk of the others -- 155 cases -- were dismissed by the cities that issued the citations."
Naturally, Hallandale Beach is one of those cities mentioned in the story.
In fact, this news segment starts with
Lohse standing near the city's electronic message board warning drivers about the law going into effect at west-bound Hallandale Beach Blvd. & N.W. 10th Terrace on Tuesday, which I have been mentioning here for the past several days.

#HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang w/Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, out of what seems like the tens of thousands that I've actually seen, despite the fact that you can't actually see her truly amazing smile or dazzling beauty. But trust me, you know that it's there! An even more amazing photo when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to just get to this particular spot. At Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. ��
