Cantrell on speed camera changes: "I don't care if someone's going one mile over"

I hate to have the pushback on it, but...Im looking at it from a parents perspective.When the red light and speeding cameras were first set up, the city wouldnt issue fines until a vehicle was caught going ten miles an hour over the speed limit, or six miles an hour over the limit in an active school zone, and that fact was made public. Cantrell changed it to eight miles an hour over the limit and four miles an hour for active school zones. The New Orleans Advocate reported the city received a study that said it would make millions more dollars in fines with the switch, which was made unannounced.Cantrell said she wishes she could issue fines if drivers go even one mile over the limit.If I could reduce it to 20 miles an hour, I would, Cantrell said. I dont care if someone is going one mile over, four miles over, eight miles over. Theyre over the speed limit.The mayor also talked about the increase in fines for motor vehicles parked in bicycle lanes, and efforts to make sure party bus operators have the necessary permits and follow other rules that apply to their business.You can watch the video below:functiond, s, id var js, fjs d.getElementsByTagNames0 if d.getElementByIdid return js d.createElements js.id id js.src //connect.facebook.net/enUS/sdk.jsxfbml1&versionv2.3 fjs.parentNode.insertBeforejs, fjsdocument, script, facebook-jssdk Tags: Latoya Cantrell speed cameras Traffic School Zones Comments

The mayor also left for a trade mission to Cuba, with no prior announcement.Some journalists wonder why there was no advanced notice.Political analyst Clancy DuBos says hes been surprised.Its the first time I can remember a mayor having a big trip like this and not announcing it, DuBos said.On the traffic cameras in school zones, DuBos says he agrees with the plan if its really about public safety.I think thats good policy but to not announce it and then bristle at the push back, said DuBos.DuBos says he believes Mayor Cantrell is well-liked but shes on a learning curve after just six years in the political arena.

LSU Poll: Majority support for legalization of marijuana, sports betting

LSU Public Policy Research Lab Director Dr. Mike Henderson said sports betting received support from 59 of residents while recreational marijuana received the approval of 55 of residents.You look at these questions and sort of take them as a whole, you alsmost get a feel that there is this Libertarian lean in Louisiana, at least on these particular social issues, said Henderson.Henderson said there is a big generational gap on recreational pot support. A majority of support comes from younger residents. 80 of those ages 18-29 support the idea of legalization, but those 65 and older showed a 69 opposition.This is a generational change over time. Younger folks seem to be more accomodating to this idea, older folks still seem to be pretty resistant to the idea, said Henderson.Legislation to legalize sports betting in Louisiana is up for discussion in the session. Governor Edwards has voiced his support for the activity. Henderson said in addition to the latest data, there is a history of public opinion in the state that would indicate support.Just because you have public opinion leaning strongly in one direction or the other, that doesnt necessarily drive how legislators behave. But this one could be a little bit different because they could say, Hey look, there is a lot of public support for this, said Henderson. Tags: marijuana Sports betting LSU Louisiana Survey Comments
