In The Capitol: Privatization Safeguards

By Pedro Morillas
Legislative Director

SB 1303 (Simitian)—Provides clear guidelines and safeguards for the growing use of outsourced “red light cameras” for traffic enforcement.

Problem:

Nationally, almost 700 local governments have entered into deals with for-profit companies to install camera systems at intersections and along roadways to encourage drivers to obey traffic signals and follow speed limits.  Privatized traffic law enforcement may be a useful tool in keeping drivers and pedestrians safe. But when private firms and municipalities consider profits first, and safety second, the public interest is threatened.

Solution:

Among other provisions, this legislation protects the public interest by:

-    Prohibiting the use of red light cameras for the purpose of raising revenue
-    Requiring a demonstrated safety need
-    Requiring local jurisdictions to follow state standards in the placement and operation of cameras
-    Requiring adequate signage to notify drivers when red light cameras are in use

I am not sure what to think about this cameras being installed here. I think we can get some good security with these being installed here. I think there is definitely more pros then cons with it. Visa prepaid
