Red Light Cameras Are Off! Victory For The People!

The red light cameras that have vexed Houston drivers are now out of commission, Mayor Annise Parker says.

The city council officially canvassed this morning the November 2 election results, making official the vote to remove the cameras.

Now the city has to negotiate with the owner of the cameras, since there's a contract that was supposed to last through 2014.

Also, according to Parker, the city will have to make up $10 million or so in lost revenue from the devices.

The cameras will still be up at intersections, but they will not be working. Eventually they will come down and be returned to ATS Systems, we assume.
