Connecticut Getting Red Light Cameras?

A Connecticut bill, which was repeatedly described as a work in progress, creates a pilot program allowing towns with populations exceeding 48,000 to install the cameras. The cameras will photograph the license plates of vehicles running red lights or otherwise breaking the law. Owners of vehicles photographed would be issued infractions of up to $50 by mail. According to the bill’s fiscal analysis, the cameras will cost towns between $50,000 and $75,000 for installation and maintenance. However, towns can expect an increase in revenue depending upon how many people are ticketed and how many of them pay the fines.
