ATS offers last-minute settlement – Chris Moran, Chron Houston Politics

A top executive of the city’s red-light camera vendor publicly offered not to pursue damages for the eight months the city had the cameras dark if the city would keep them on through the end of 2013.

George Hittner, general counsel for American Traffic Solutions, offered to “wipe the slate clean” and end the contract five months before its May 2014 expiration if the city keeps the cameras on.

Translation: ATS would like to keep Bill White’s revenue stream flowing, and isn’t at all confident that it will win much in damages when the City of Houston honors the will of voters and breaks the contract.

All the more reason to go ahead, get rid of the things, and let ATS fight for damages in court.
