Texas considering an end to red light cameras

House members gave the bill preliminary approval Friday after including amendments by Rep. Gary Elkins, R-Houston, to give the Texas Department of Transportation authority over red light cameras in the state.

“As soon as these contracts are up, (cameras) would have to come down,” Elkins told the Star-Telegram. "We’re just saying as a matter of public policy going forward, this state doesn’t want them." (emphasis added)

Following the Constitution is good public policy. Our founding fathers would be shocked at some of the ordinances that allow these revenue cameras.
