Politics: Robot Revenooers on Thunder Road.
Apparently, it's now official: The Sheriff of Knoxingham has enlisted the help of R2D2 to swell his coffers.
Everyone outside of the PR department of Redflex Traffic Systems and various revenue collection law enforcement agencies (both with no dog in the fight, of course) agrees that the cameras do dick-all to reduce traffic accidents, a fact made more infuriating by the news that the myopic little HAL9000's can't even seem to ticket the right car with certainty, so why are we being forced to subsidize this little revenooin' scheme?
