Can Cities Continue Red Light Camera Ticketing?

Texas cities are forced to review their red light camera contracts after the discovery of a potential loophole in Texas law.

"A court ruling in Dallas against a red-light camera company could effect the company that operates Austin's red-light cameras. There are five red-light cameras already set up around the Austin area, and more are on the way.

After receiving a citation in the mail, Dallas Attorney Lloyd Ward decided to do a little digging on how ACS , which runs the cameras in Dallas, operates. Ward found ACS had a business license but not an occupational license. The occupational license is something ACS should have if they collect pictures and information to use for prosecution.

A judge recently ruled in favor of Ward's claims against ACS, but now Ward is suing Redflex as well as red-light camera vendor American Traffic Solutions, because both companies do not have an occupational license. ATS is another large red-light camera company that just put up cameras in Hutto."
