The old expression goes, “You can’t beat City Hall”. Maybe we can! Recently the O’Fallon City Council passed a new law that virtually allows the police to pull people over for nearly any reason.
You have heard the expression that some people can’t walk and chew gum at the same time. This law presumes we can’t drive and chew gum at the same time. If you didn’t like the red light cameras, you’re not going to like this one either. Despite the propaganda you may hear about doing anything in the car while driving, this is nothing more than “taxation through citation”. The police are there to protect us, not to try to extract additional revenue out of those who pass through their city.
