REDMOND, Wash. – One man’s passion against red light cameras has turned into a petition drive in Redmond. And it’s being backed by another man made famous for many petition drives of his own.
“It just doesn’t feel right,” says Redmond resident Scott Harlan, who was upset after the Redmond City Council voted 7-0 in favor of installing four sets of red light cameras as part of a 12-month pilot program.
The cameras went hot Feb. 1.
Feeling like the council was ignoring his opposition to the cameras, Harlan turned to a guy who likes to wear a red light camera on his head – initiative gadfly Tim Eyman.
