Houston City Council Approves Red-Light Cameras
10 Intersections Will Have Cameras Within 45 Days

— reported by Click2Houston.com

Houston police have a new tool to discourage reckless driving with the City Council’s approval of a plan to place cameras at intersections.

The council’s Wednesday vote clears the way for a contractor to begin installing the cameras within 45 days, initially at 10 city intersections. The city will first spend a month educating the public about the plan, including an announcement of the cameras’ locations.

The cameras take photos of the license plates of offending vehicles, which enables police to send citations to the vehicles’ registered owners.

In Houston, the $75 red-light violations won’t count against a motorist’s driving record, unlike tickets issued by police officer, the city said.
