Red Light For Cameras
The General Assembly may finally put the breaks on red light cameras-maybe:
The issue of so-called "red light" or traffic cameras may come to a head in the first session of the 107th General Assembly. Several legislators have expressed interest in banning the devices by way of a bill, and sources tell The Examiner that Tennesseans will almost certainly see legislation introduced designed to curb use of the cameras or eliminate them. One freshman member from East Tennessee told The Examiner that a bill was being drafted to ban the devices. "It is my intention to ban the red light cameras," the member said on the condition of anonymity because the bill has not yet been drafted or introduced, "and I am going to try and introduce a bill to that effect."
