Re: "St. Albert's photo radar policy needs changing," Letters, July 6. 

Letter-writer A. Reich suggested changing St. Albert’s photo radar policy. Some changes proposed in the letter included making photo radar fines “more reasonable," and identifying photo radar vehicles with markers like bright colours, flags, and pylons. Reich also asked if the city could change the fine structure so we can speed for less. 

Among all our laws, we have rules that limit our vehicle speeds. If a law says 50 km/h is the maximum in a given area, then don’t go any faster. No one should be looking for telltale signs of traffic enforcement vehicles with bright colours, flags, or pylons. No one should have to calculate the value of their speeding. Just follow the speed limits.

It’s very easy, people — if you don’t want to get caught speeding, don’t speed!

For those of you who do speed, thank you for adding to the city’s revenue — us slow guys appreciate your support.
