Finally, someone’s fighting back against the fleecing of the general populace
Famous for liking things big, Texas lawmakers have laid the smackdown on red light and speed cameras in a big way!
HB.922 addresses this issue:
House Bill 922 amends the Transportation Code to prohibit a municipality from implementing an automated traffic control system to enforce compliance with speed limits and requires the attorney general to enforce the prohibition.
This means that cameras, automated radar or laser, or anything else designed to snag an image of a car, driver, or license plate and record its speed is now forbidden.
The even larger racket of red-light cameras have had the brakes applied by HB.1052, which requires warning signs, at least 100 feet out, before intersections at which a municipality uses a photographic traffic monitoring system to enforce compliance with a traffic-control signal.
