Traffic Cameras–To Be Or Not To Be?

The fate of much-maligned speed and red light cameras in Louisiana could end up in voters’ hands soon.  The House Transportation Committee will meet in Baton Rouge today to decide whether or not residents should decide if they want traffic cameras.

Red light and speed cameras, or automated traffic ticketing systems, take a snapshot of of the license plate of vehicles committing traffic violations. The owner of the vehicle then receives a ticket in the mail.

Opponents of the cameras say they’re just a money grab for cities that employ the devices.  Proponents say they help prevent traffic accidents.

Ultimately the decision may be up to voters.
