Red-Light Camera Fines Start Just After Midnight Sunday
The red-light cameras have been back on for a while now, but things start to get serious this weekend.
Houston police chief Charles McClelland announced today that fines will begin being issued as of 12:01 a.m. Sunday morning, just in time for your post-Saturday-night bar-hopping.
No fines have been issued on any violations captured by the cameras in the last few weeks after the city turned them back on, and none will be issued before Sunday.
After that, you're on your own.

The city says it has no choice but to live up to a contract it signed with American Traffic Solutions to operate the cameras, after a federal judge ruled that a referendum where voters opted to remove them was not valid.
They are pursuing the matter in appeals court.
