Lubbock Co. Commissioners vote against speeding cameras 4-0

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock County Commissioners voted against a school zone speeding camera proposal 4-0 during their meeting on Monday.

The proposal was made to commissioners by American Traffic Solutions, the same company that provided the controversial red light cameras to Lubbock in 2008.

If the proposal had been pushed through, 25 speeding cameras would have been installed in school zones throughout Lubbock County, including school districts inside municipalities.

This would have brought the county a prospected $18 million dollars in speeding fines in one year while American Traffic Solutions would earn up to $16 million.

Back in 2007, the state legislature outlawed speeding cameras for Texas cities, but the law did not prohibit counties from installing them.
