Round Rock ends red light camera program
On Thursday night the City of Round Rock voted to cancel their red light camera enforcement program.
The city council voted to terminate the contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, the provider of the red light cameras.
The cameras were installed as a safety measure in 2011 to catch drivers illegally crossing intersections.
In 2015, Texas lawmakers proposed a bill that would prohibit photographic traffic enforcement systems statewide. That bill did not pass.
At the time Round Rock was already considering getting rid of the program.
A city spokesperson said in early 2015 that it was not clear if the program improved safety, and was not generating much revenue.
The contract will end at the end of the year, about five months ahead of its scheduled end date.
