Bill Would Allow Red Light Cameras In Michigan

Michigan's local governments would have the option to put cameras at intersections to spot drivers running red lights under proposed legislation in the state House.

A measure recently introduced by Republican Representative Wayne Schmidt of Traverse City would give local communities the power to put cameras in place.

Schmidt says in a statement that "local governments should be given control over whether they want to use this kind of technology in their communities."

Under the bill, communities would have to put up a sign within 500 feet of the intersection to warn motorists about the camera. Drivers wouldn't be penalized for citations that result from the camera on their driving record or toward their insurance.
