Banthecams plans red-light camera protest Saturday in Apopka

Banthecams, the non-profit organization devoted to educating the public about the truth behind red-light cameras, has planned a red-light camera protest in Apopka, Fla. this Saturday, Oct. 12. The rally, which starts at 10 a.m., will take place outside the CVS Pharmacy, located at 65 East Main Street in Apopka.

Protest organizer and Banthecams founder Henry Bentley explained the purpose of the protest to The Global Dispatch, saying:

“The protest is two-fold this month. First and foremost is the education of the public as to what is really going on with the red light camera issue. Second is to show the powers at hand that they will not stop us from exercising our first amendment right to the freedom of speech, the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Learn more about the protest and the group at their website: Banthecams.org

Bentley added that more information will be available through a press release later this week.

    Resistance to red light cameras is growing, nationwide. California is up to 57 cities that have ended programs or blocked them before they could start. Bills in Michigan were stopped with the help of the ACLU, the Campaign for Liberty, the Police Officers Association of Michigan, the judges, and the National Motorists Association. A city in Missouri just said “no thanks”.

    Red light cameras are always about money, not safety. If they ticketed only unsafe drivers, the fines would not even come close to paying the typical high camera costs of $4,000 to $5,000 per month per camera. ONLY by ticketing mostly safe drivers can the scam even exist financially.
