"Surveillance cameras along Interstate 95 in this small South Carolina town have nabbed thousands of speeders. They also have attracted heated opposition from state lawmakers and sparked a federal court challenge. ... Ridgeland Mayor Gary Hodges said the cameras in his town about 20 miles north of the Georgia line do what they are designed to do: slow people down, reduce accidents and, most importantly, save lives. But lawmakers who want to unplug them contend the system is just a money-maker and amounts to unconstitutional selective law enforcement." (03/28/111)
