Smile, You're On a Red Light Camera
The City of El Paso is considering putting red light runners on the web.
Monday, February 13, 2006 — Some say it's an invasion of privacy. But when the City of El Paso installs red light cameras at selected intersections in the next few months, red light runners may find their photos on the Police Department's website, alongside those people arrested for DWI's.
Right now, the Police Department is collecting the bids for the red light camera system. Once the City selects the lowest bid, the contractor will have 90 days to install the cameras. They could be on traffic signal poles around the city by this summer. And they'll stay up for a year-long trial.
