Red Light Camera status in NC

 

Does anyone know the status of the red light camera issue in NC. I thought I recently heard that local governments are revisiting the issue with hopes of reinstating this form of traffic enforcement.

I just Googled Red Light Camera North Carolina and the number one listing is http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/11/1132.asp
And there were no additional articles with newer information.

Thanks!

Hi Miss POI,

I know there is talk of re-instituting the cameras and I just haven't heard of any new info for a few months. Thanks for keeping an eye on the situation.

Wilmington discovered it owed millions...

...from the program to the school system because of a law. But rather than cancelling the red light program as other NC towns have done, they've decided to up the fines so the schools can be paid as well as the camera company.

I also heard that what it's accomplished is to decrease side impact collisions, from drivers running lights, and increased rear end crashes.

Three cheers for bureaucrats who try to micromanage human behavior.
