Texas senators hope to nix red light cameras

Fourteen state senators, including Conroe's Brandon Creighton, hope their bill will spell the end of red light cameras in Texas.

Creighton is one of the legislators who authored Senate Bill 1340, which completely bans red light cameras throughout the state by outlawing all forms of photo enforcement by camera.

"Not only at local level are residents having their voices heard, but also at state level," Creighton said of his constituents. "I'm not compelled that the use of red light cameras statewide or locally is best policy. I'm going to stay consistent with that position until I am presented with a compelling argument otherwise."
