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.
