Lacking a sense of civic duty

While Houston's red light cameras may be cranking out the tickets like crazy, many of those on the receiving end aren't rushing to pay the fines (via KTRH-740):

Only 11 percent of people who received a red-light camera ticket in September paid the fine before the end of the month, according to the City Controller's financial report. The paid tickets brought in less than $10,000 in revenue compared to the expected $84,000 in issued tickets.

People who did not have an issue with the citation paid their tickets said Houston Police Captain Dwayne Ready. "They looked at the picture; they looked at the evidence and just submitted their payment."

Ready said red-light camera runners have 45 days to pay the fine, so no payments were past due at the time the September report was posted.

Come on, people! MayorWhiteChiefHurtt and ATS are counting on you!
