Traffic Cams In Louisiana City Could Be Put On hold
(Information from: The Advocate, http://theadvocate.com)
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Traffic camera enforcement in a Louisiana city could be on hold as its local government determines what company will manage the program.
The Advocate reports the contract between Lafayette and Redflex ended on Sunday as government leaders were still negotiating with a competing company to run the traffic cameras.
City-Parish President Joel Robideaux says the cameras will continue taking photos and keep track of violations, although citations will not likely be issued until a new contract is linked. He says all outstanding citations issued through June 4 are considered valid, and others could be issued if a provisional agreement is reached with Redflex.
City-parish figures released in 2016 say more than $10 million in fines have gone uncollected. Robideaux says that's one reason they're looking for a new vendor.
