Bay Area The Citizen - Senator Don Huffines (R-Dallas) and Representative Gary Elkins (R-Houston) have filed legislation that would ban red light cameras. Senator Huffines and Representative Elkins are proud to join the tens of thousands of Texans who have voted against and petitioned for the removal of cameras all across Texas.
...Representative Elkins, who is the author of House Bill 1131, added: "From their inception, red light cameras have been wrong for Texas. These cameras are nothing more than taxation by citation. It's time that we exercise better judgment on safety and law enforcement."
