If the Nassau County Police Department would use its resources more effectively and efficiently, there would be no need for subcontracted cameras with extra fees and maintenance ["What to do now about speed cams?" Letters, Jan. 5].

If the police would enforce the traffic laws more frequently, the revenue would be greatly increased, with no extra costs at all. I'm talking about more patrols in neighborhoods, where people blow through stop signs with impunity, knowing that enforcement is negligible or nonexistent.

Speeding is also a problem.
