Traffic Safety Camera Program

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - (Business Wire) The City of Aventura, Florida has signed a contract making American Traffic Solutions its first-ever vendor for the city’s traffic safety camera program. All the systems will be equipped with ATS’ latest ultra high resolution digital cameras.


What's happening to Aventura? Camera are NOT the answer to traffic issues. Does this mean that the City might gain revenue from the traffic tickets they can mail drivers because they were caught violating on camera or is it to have a record of accidents and jams that occur? Either way this does not solve our traffic problem.

One main source of traffic is the popular Aventura Mall. This mall is even more popular since Nordstrom was built. I think that the Aventura Mall should CHARGE for parking. This will eliminate the people that come to the mall just to hang out or window shop. I imagine there's a large percentage of people that would stop driving through Aventura if the mall was not a FREE destination. Let's be honest, the shops won't miss any of that business and then just maybe we'll have less traffic around town. I don't mind paying $5.00 for parking, would you?

Do you have any suggestions? What do you think about these new digital traffic cameras?
