Bill To End Red Light Cameras Refused By AZ House Committee

Photo-enforced-red-light-cameraAn Arizona House committee on Thursday refused to approve a bill ending the ability of cities and towns to use photo radar and red light cameras, rebuffing opponents who argued electronic enforcement is used to raise money from fines, does not save lives and can actually increase dangers on the roads when drivers slam on the brakes to avoid a ticket.

The bill is the latest failed attempt to stop photo enforcement in the state, which is home to the two largest photo enforcement providers in the nation, American Traffic Solutions and Redflex.

Members of the Transportation Committee rejected the bill on a four-to-two vote.
