The group will spend four months studying the effectiveness of sugar land's red light camera program.
The task force will then develop a recommendation for the city that could include getting rid of, keeping or modifying the program.
The task force was created following a report to Sugar Land council members on June 4, which determined that a petition to prohibit enforcement of the city's cameras was invalid because the petition didn't meet city charter requirements.
Sugar Land currently has the red light cameras at four intersections - U.S. Highway 59 at Highway 6, U.S. Highway 90A at Dairy Ashford, Eldridge Road at West Airport Boulevard and Highway 6 at Lexington Boulevard.
According to the city, they've resulted in a 58 percent reduction in accidents at those intersections from 2009-2012.
