LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Traffic tickets can provide revenue

We have an infinite supply of revenue that could be used to finance road repair, much-needed sidewalks and alley repair in this city — traffic tickets!

Every time I leave the house I see over 100 violations that should be ticketed. The No. 1 violation is speeding. Any road, any time, any day, people are exceeding the speed limit. Maybe they don't know the meaning of the word “limit.”

That means the very fastest you should go, not the slowest. Endless revenue. Red light running is rampant. Endless revenue. All day long people are turning right on red, forgetting the law says “right turn on red after stop.” So that would be the same as disregarding an automatic signal, or running a stop sign. Endless revenue.

Also'enforcing traffic laws would increase safety for all.
