Default Texas Cities Dump Red Light Cameras In Response To Ban

Full article at

At least 33 Texas cities confirmed this week their intention to cease red light camera ticketing.

"So far, officials in the following cities have confirmed pulling the plug on automated ticketing: Amarillo, Austin, Balch Springs, Bedford, Burleson, Cedar Hill, Coppell, Dallas, Denton, Diboll, Duncanville, El Paso, Farmers Branch, Frisco, Ft Worth, Garland, Grand Prairie, Haltom City, Hurst, Irving, Little Elm, Lufkin, Magnolia, Marshall, Mesquite, North Richland Hills, Plano, Richland Hills, Roanoke, Southlake, Sugar Land, Watauga and Willis. Amarillo says it will cancel the contract after a ninety day waiting period, but the rest have decided to end ticketing immediately. Mesquite has removed red light camera information from its website.

A handful of cities are holding out on confirming their response. A few others intend to be scofflaw cities, exercising a narrow loophole that was inserted into the ban legislation by supporters of automated ticketing companies. Only cities that explicitly removed a common contract provision allowing for program termination in the event of "adverse state legislation" can continue using the devices until their deals with private vendors expire. Humble wants to run red light cameras until 2024, Balcones Heights until 2034 and Leon Valley until 2038. It will be up to attorney general Ken Paxon to decide whether the wording of their deals with private vendors actually meets the legal standard."
