In a rare moment of sanity for easily manipulated City Council members, those in Loma Linda decided that, well, “enough was enough” with red light scameras.
Not only did they shut them off, but incredibly, in the name of actual safety, a full second was added to all yellow light times where the cameras were removed.
Pretend safety “experts,” Redflex Traffic Systems, who ran the Loma Linda spy camera ring were taking home the lion share of the money from the citations that were in excess of $500. And you thought your $181 ransom note from AZ DPS was profitable for the Australian operation!
Undoubtedly, just like everywhere else that yellow light times are extended and overall traffic signal timing is improved, Loma Linda is sure to see a dramatic decrease in accidents across the board. Congrats to the people of that city who will surely be happy with the exit of Redflex.
BIG SIS INVADES WAL-MART: ‘IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING’
WASHINGTON — Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced the expansion of the Department’s national “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign to hundreds of Walmart stores across the country—launching a new partnership between DHS and Walmart to help the American public play an active role in ensuring the safety and security of our nation.
“Homeland security starts with hometown security, and each of us plays a critical role in keeping our country and communities safe,” said Secretary Napolitano. “I applaud Walmart for joining the ‘If You See Something, Say Something’ campaign. This partnership will help millions of shoppers across the nation identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities.”
The “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign—originally implemented by New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority and funded, in part, by $13 million from DHS’ Transit Security Grant Program—is a simple and effective program to engage the public and key frontline employees to identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to the proper transportation and law enforcement authorities.
More than 230 Walmart stores nationwide launched the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign today, with a total of 588 Walmart stores in 27 states joining in the coming weeks. A short video message, available here, will play at select checkout locations to remind shoppers to contact local law enforcement to report suspicious activity.
Over the past five months, DHS has worked with its federal, state, local and private sector partners, as well as the Department of Justice, to expand the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign and Nationwide SAR Initiative to communities throughout the country—including the recent state-wide expansions of the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign across Minnesota and New Jersey. Partners include the Mall of America, the American Hotel & Lodging Association, Amtrak, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, sports and general aviation industries, and state and local fusion centers across the country.
In the coming months, the Department will continue to expand the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign nationally with public education materials and outreach tools designed to help America’s businesses, communities and citizens remain vigilant and play an active role in keeping the country safe.
As if I needed another reason to avoid Wal-Mart like the plague.

Hokay, back to Loma Linda and red light cameras…
On Oct. 13, 2010 the SB Sun reported that thousands of tickets LL issued during 2006 were invalid, because the yellow lights were too short. LL discovered the problem, and lengthened the yellows, in Nov. 2006. But by that time their cameras had been in operation for ten months. At that time, they should have stopped prosecuting the invalid tickets, and offered refunds to the people who had already paid. But they apparently said nothing. They owe the public an apology, refunds, and damages.
To read the SBSun story, Google Loma Linda short yellows.
Thanks for the info. We will probably have to reexamine this story as it develops.
