The governor signed a bill into law that does away with red light cameras in the great state of Texas!

We had them here for years here and the City Council wouldn't renew the contract, so they're gone now.

Probably a good idea if you would STILL STOP at the red lights, Gooseman … :)

Missouri banned those years ago, they were deemed unconstitutional.

Maybe more than you want to know. Redflex

I'm sure this is just one vendor, but they automate various intersections and position a camera and integrated sensors under the road bed to determine speeders and folks that run the red light signal. They're generally on only one direction at a given intersection and it generates a bill to you based on the fine for your violation. Most of these citations aren't reported on your license and they ding your credit report if you don't pay it. The unconstitionality claim has to do with due process, but they our city had a board that heard anyone that wanted to protest the violation. It certainly put a lot of people on their best behavior. This outfit also had speed vans that they parked along major thouroufares and mailed you a ticket if you were caught speeding along with your picture. It generated a lot of revenue, but the city got greedy and wanted a bigger cut. Plus Redflex made headlines regarding bribery of public officials in other jurisdictions. I understand they were going through an RFP, but that was three years ago and we still don't have a vendor and Redflex picked up all their equipment. Many of the radar detectors these days have downloads of these camera locations. I need to get an update for one of mine because it still thinks we have cameras.
