EL CAJON TO COVER AND SHUT OFF RED LIGHT CAMERAS; WILL REEVALUATE SAFETY IN 6 MONTHS

 

By Janis Mork

March 1, 2013 (El Cajon) – El Cajon’s Council 4-1 this week to cover and shut  off red light cameras for six months, though cameras will remain installed.  Safety data will be evaluated in six months and if accidents have not risen sharply, Council made clear its intent to permanently remove the red light cameras.

Pro Tem Mayor Bill Wells addressed issues that red light cameras have brought to El Cajon.  While some contend the surveillance devices improve safety, the results are inconclusive.  But the cameras also pose problems of “civil liberties,” Wells noted.  “I am asking us to engage in a debate to end the contract [with Redflex].”
