Red Light Cameras May Be On Their Way Out

Photo red light enforcement cameras may be on their way out if the Texas legislature has it's way. A bill in the House has a sunset clause that would phase out the cameras within five years.

The amendment would forbid cities from entering into contracts for red-light cameras after June 1. It also would forbid cities with existing systems – such as Killeen – from renewing or extending their contracts. Source: Killeen Daily Herald

Of course, this ammendment has to survive the vote and the process of being reconciled with the Senate version. Given all the hue and cry about these traffic enforcement cameras I wouldn't bet on their long term survival.
