Chad Dornsife, Executive Director
Best Highway Safety Practices Institute
See Chad Dornsife’s excellent Power point presentation from 2002 that explains step by step how our transportation safety practices have been transformed to accommodate new, profit driven methods of enforcement.
This presentation includes charts that illustrate the facts-Automated enforcement devices like Red Light Cameras are NOT for the purpose of improving safety. Even worse, often they put us at a greater risk of harm.
Mr. Dornsife has laid out here, in 2002, what people are beginning to figure out from years of experience with these “safety devices” in their communities.
Another eye opener.
SUMMARY—Provides for a pilot program for local governments
to use certain automated systems for the enforcement of traffic laws.
“We the People” didn’t have a chance when it came to automated enforcement. While many are getting in line to milk this cash cow, those at the top that legalized this public theft at the expense of safety and due process have already cashed out – BIG!
says Chad Dornsife
What is interesting about this paper is the points he raises about NHTSA’s role and the examples of the corrupt behaviors and motivations behind such legislation. The information in this brief is ammunition for every opponent of the Sham Scameras and other bogus so-called safety devices that are being implemented as a means to drain driver’s and fatten the wallets of some.
Without exception, in every city we have examined with cameras, the signal timing is inadequate and it must remain that way for the cameras to be financially viable. If the cameras could reduce red light running, their business model fails.
Simply stated, without high sustainable violation rates nobody makes money and the cameras are removed.

Another thing, there seems to be a real issue with government officials making these police state, privacy busting laws for us and weaving in loopholes or making exceptions for themselves and their buddies.
“They’ve exempted themselves from the rules they’re enforcing,” said Chad Dornsife, director of the Best Highway Safety Practices Institute.
“They know it, is what’s really sick about this. This isn’t some surprise that when the camera comes out they don’t have to worry about it.”
Steal this list!!
I don’t think Mr. Kokesh will mind at all. The principles he espouses would make a good checklist to use when evaluating our representatives and ourselves.
Number 10 speaks to this exact issue
Mr. Dornsife’s website;
The Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides professionals, policy makers, the press and the public with empirical data, findings, guidance, recommended practices and resources to advance best practices and fair laws. The Institute was founded in 2004, in Portland, Oregon by professionals who specialize in highway safety issues.
The Institute focuses on a holistic approach to education, research, best practices and their application, and assuring public policy is founded in best practices to achieve roadway safety and that the exercise of police powers thereof is Constitutional. We can make our roads safer, return to fair laws and reduce our carbon footprint, too.
Best Practice is defined by those practices that have been verified by field research and are peer reviewed before adoption.
In 1966, Congress passed The Highway Safety Act of 1966 which began a process to require that all traffic control devices on public roadways in the nation be based on sound engineering principles, practices and have a uniform basis in–fact determination, appearance, expectation and application on all roads open to public travel regardless of state lines, jurisdiction type or classification.
Motorists’ Rights… Matter, because they represent the Rule of Law, the core values of fairness that our Country was founded on.
Worse is the entitlement attitude of public officials who sustain and expand these revenue streams and power for themselves and their interest-aligned constituents, not “We the People.”
This problem is compounded by a faux court system whose very existence is dependent on these illicit enterprises where the Rule of Law need not apply- but they do have payment plans.
