More on Safe Housing/Safe Streets

One of the suggestions that came up in the workshop on Safe Housing in Greensboro was to ask NC legislators to change the law that now sends all money received from fines to schools.

Fines from housing violations (and I don't know how much is actually collected) could be returned to the community to help with inspections and repairing and awareness programs, etc.

Another change in the present law could also make money from red-light cameras available to help make streets safer for pedestrians, bike, car and motor bike riders.

What do you think?
