From the Denver Post “Man mourns classic ’57 Chevy t-boned in Thornton after restoration“
Joy turned to sorrow in an instant last week, when Seber’s car, which was sporting a brand new, one-day-old custom paint job, was broadsided.
Seber’s car was t-boned by a 2001 pick-up truck. Its driver was cited by Thornton police for running a red light. He has a court appearance scheduled for Sept. 9.
Apparently the City of Rio Rancho’s Robot speed enforcement van’s don’t know where they are.
The speed limit in the neighborhood is 25 mph and Trujillo was ordered to pay $100 for speeding. She was driving 41 mph on Idalia Road when the speeding van clocked her.
Rio Rancho police said it was a human error and they’re going to dismiss the ticket. Police said tat least three others have come forward and their tickets were also dismissed.
Only three people have come forward but how many were incorrectly ticketed? Will the city of Rio Rancho just keep the money unless someone questions their ticket? Clearly they don’t have officers reviewing these tickets from the speed vans (and perhaps the red light speed cameras) for mistakes, After all the purpose of the speed vans are a way for the city to make money.
Computers are only as good as their programming, and when you put a computer in charge of enforcing people to behave this is the results.
