The Riverside City Council is facing an upcoming vote that will determine the fate of the system of cameras that take pictures at serveral intersections in town. When the red-light camera system started in Riverside there were 30 cameras-- already several have been removed-- however the city still has 11 cameras in operation.
The red-light cameras in Riverside are operated by Redflex, a company based in Arizona.
Riverside Council Member Mike Soubirous is a former CHP commander, and he believes the camera system should be removed. The question: Does the rest of the council agree, or at least a simple majority?
Soubirous will join us LIVE on InstantRiverside.com Talk Radio. We'll also take calls from listeners, especially people who live in Riverside. Do you want the red-light cameras to stay or go?

It's clear that the American people have no say in the aforementioned issues, or any issue for that matter. We are not a democracy, and pretending such, only strengthens the system.

The cemetery was dedicated and opened for burials Nov. 11, 1978. An additional 181 acres was transferred by the Air Force in 2003.
