Temporary red light camera delay

via KTRK-13:

Red light cameras that were supposed to be in place Tuesday at busy downtown intersections already face a snag.

The cameras designed to catch red light runners were supposed to begin a trial run Tuesday morning, but the five contract companies involved have not signed their contracts with the city. The city wants to put five cameras at five different intersections to catch drivers who speed through red lights.

Violators will be identified from the license plate and will get a ticket in the mail. The cameras should start working in a few more days once the executives ink the deal.

No doubt, Mayor White is carefully checking the contracts for any sneaky shenanigans.
