In theory, Americans have the fundamental right to confront their accuser. But what if the accuser is an inanimate camera lens? It is difficult to cross-examine a photograph. As a community, we have generally decided that speed cameras have value, particularly in school zones where all else has failed. The wellbeing of our children tops all. And if speed cameras slow down the flow of traffic and make them safer, they have our support. Of course there are a whole lot of issues involving speed cameras that transcend safety, the most obvious being revenue.
