    Great stuff. People getting ran over almost everyday in Antioch.

  2. As a pedestrian, you take your own life in your hands when crossing any Antioch street, whether or not you cross with the light. Why doesn’t Antioch Police Department do crosswalk stings any longer? Seems like a plentiful resource for funds.. but only if you ask a pedestrian.

    The city does not make a gang of money on tickets. They really are not a “plentiful resource for funds”.

      You are correct Julio. Same myth about CHP getting revenue on speeding tickets. That money goes directly to the state. Registration fees on the other hand is a different story.

      They city earns a lot of revenue from sales tax, real estate tax, gas tax, and grants and funds from the state or federal depending on the parameters.
