National Camera News: Los Angeles City Council Shuts Down Red Light Cameras

The Los Angeles, CA city council has officially voted to end the city's red light camera program.  The council unanimously voted to accept last month's decision of a police commission against continuing the camera program.  "We need to be honest and transparent with this," city council member Zine said. "This program did not work as anticipated."   

The red light camera program for the nation's second largest city, which issued $476 tickets and included ticketing drivers for rolling right turns, will be ended July 31.
