Restricting The Use Of Red Light Cameras

Concerning the limited use of automated vehicle identification systems designed to detect disobedience to a traffic signal.
Session:
2016 Regular Session
Subjects:
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Transportation & Motor Vehicles

Current law allows the use of automated vehicle identification systems designed to detect disobedience to a traffic signal on all traffic signals.

Prior to December 31, 2016, the act prohibits the use of automated vehicle identification systems designed to detect disobedience to a traffic signal on collector roads and local streets, but allows the use of the systems within a school zone, within a highway or road construction or repair zone, or on arterial roads. On or after December 31, 2016, the systems may not be used anywhere in the state.

The act requires that fines assessed through the use of these systems be used for traffic safety improvements, traffic enforcement, or related purposes.
