LAPD Commission Puts Brakes On Red-Light Cameras
June 8, 2011
The civilian board that oversees the Los Angeles Police Department has put the brakes on the city’s red-light traffic camera program.
The Police Commission agreed Tuesday to reject a proposal from police officials to award a new contract to the company that has been operating the cameras.
An audit last year questioned the effectiveness of the program, finding that a majority of citations have gone uncollected. Commissioner Alan Skobin says that since the courts don’t pursue drivers who refuse to pay the tickets, the camera program lacks enforcement power.
