Houston red light camera program under attack.

August 9, 2010: Opponents of Houston’s red light camera program turned in 30,000 signatures on a petition backing a proposed charter amendment to have the cameras banned.  Mayor Annise Parker is questioning whether there is sufficient time for the city secretary to verify the signatures are from Houston voters before an upcoming August 24th election deadline. Opponents of the cameras claim the program has more to do with generating revenues than it does with promoting safe driving and reducing car accidents in Houston.  The Chronicle’s story is available here.
