Red light cameras and speed cameras are a scam, and in many places where they are installed accidents increase. It's not really about safety it's about money.

You are quoting something from nearly 5 months ago.

Fox23 says its on tomorrow's Council agenda.



Meanwhile two years ago:


Oklahoma law does not allow for the use of cameras to electronically issue traffic tickets to red-light runners, Tulsa’s city prosecutor told city councilors Thursday.
“In a nutshell, without additional legislation, at least on the civil side, we’re not going to be able to do that,” Bob Garner said.
Councilor G.T. Bynum had asked Garner to provide a legal opinion as to whether the city could use cameras to enforce traffic violations.
Garner said cities’ traffic ordinances must conform to state law and that under Oklahoma law, running a red light is a criminal misdemeanor that must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

The only thing that has changed is that more scandals have erupted around red light cameras, more high profile cities have had to abandon them, and more studies have concluded they don't make anyone safer.  $o why would we recon$ider the i$$ue?

We are very behind the curve, but I suspect Tulsa leaders will float that balloon until someone gives them the response they want.

I didnt see it on the published agenda.

Yes, you are right.
And I noticed the story vanished after airing all day Monday.  TV reporters have a bad habit of just taking handouts and running with it.
