Mississippi bans red-light camera enforcement

Who in the world would ever think that one could use "forward thinking" and "Mississippi" together in the same sentence? But it's true - Mississippi is bucking the trend of states and municipalities using red-light cameras as profit centers (who ever said that government was supposed to profit off anything? I thought government's job was to serve the people).

Is it any wonder? With example after example of municipalities that have been caught tampering with light timing in order to increase the number of tickets generated?

For the first, and perhaps only time in my life, I say hoorah to the state of Mississippi, and further exclaim that I have a reason to be jealous of them.
