Town May Take Down Traffic Cameras

RED BANK, Tenn. (AP) — The city of Red Bank might shut down its traffic cameras.
Mayor Monty Millard told the Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/O92CXF ) people who live in Red Bank don’t like the cameras and believe their use hurts the city.
Three intersections in Red Bank are under surveillance from the cameras, which are owned by Arizona-based American Traffic Solutions. Millard also said revenue from tickets issued because of driving infractions caught by the cameras has dropped significantly since the Legislature passed a law that won’t allow right turn on red tickets if the only evidence is a traffic cam.
The cameras have been in place for seven years.
A vote on whether to end the contract is scheduled for the city commission’s Sept. 4 meeting.
