That's why the Roanoke Valley SPCA is kicking off a campaign to raise 2-point-5 million dollars for a new shelter.

This one's been a shelter since 1958... taking in strays from Roanoke and Vinton, as well as Craig, Roanoke and Botetourt Counties.
It's been damaged by three floods.
Cages are too small... and there's only cold water to wash them.
Disease spreads easily among animals.

The new shelter will be located near the old one.

"What this tool here allows us to monitor the flow of traffic and capture those speeders that we would normally not capture."

(VO:) So-called photo radar is the newest surveillance weapon in a

crackdown on traffic violations...that began with red-light cameras.
More than 50 American cities now snap pictures of red-light runners. And safety studies show that approach is REDUCING the number of accidents.
But, privacy advocates say the cameras trample individual rights.

(VO:) Critics also told a Congressional panel...that the red light

cameras..are often as much about money as safety. Cities and developers of the surveillence systems make millions on the mail-in fines. Lockheed Martin IMS runs the red-light program in San Diego.

(ORR stand up CLOSE:) But safety advocates argue...there's another

number that's even more important. 42-thousand people died last year in highway accidents...and until that changes they say...concerns about privacy and profiteering should take a back seat to enforcing the law.
