City Says Bye-Bye to Red Light Cameras in Killeen
Red-light cameras all over Killeen will be deactivated at midnight on Sunday according to the Killeen Daily Herald.
The city council voted 3-2 last month not to renew the contract for the cameras with Redflex. The company will remove the equipment from the intersections by September 30th according to Killeen Public Information Director Hilary Shine.
The red-light cameras issued a $75 dollar ticket to motorists found to be running red lights in the city. Redflex split the profits with the city of Killeen according to the specifications of their contract.
In 2014, Killeen made almost $400,000 from the tickets sent out by red-light cameras. From 2010 to 2014, the Killeen Daily Herald says the city hauled in $1.4 Million dollars from the cameras.
