Texas Legislation Could Reduce Lubbock's Red Light Camera Revenue

If Texas lawmakers get their way, Lubbock red light cameras may not be as profitable as originally thought.

Three red light cameras are already up and sending warning to red light runners here in Lubbock, but now two bills waiting for Governor Perry's signature could curb most of the profits the city would receive.

Legislation aims to cap the maximum fine at $75. The City of Lubbock anticipated a maximum charge of $150.

The legislation also proposes that 50% of revenue collected from the cameras would be required to be deposited in a fund for regional trauma centers. Here in Lubbock, University Medical Center and Covenant Health Systems would benefit.

And finally, Lubbock would only be permitted to keep enough money to pay for the cameras.      The rest of the money must go to traffic safety programs.
