17 red light cameras that monitor 15 intersections in the town of Cary, NC, will go dark at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, as the town scraps its red light program.
According to a report by the research triangle TV station WRAL, Cary Town Manager Benjamin Shivar suggested scrapping the program, “citing a WRAL News report that found drivers were being improperly ticketed on left turns, as well as a lawsuit over the cameras, administrative costs and uncertainty about the state legislation authorizing the program.”
A week ago, Cary’s Town Council voted to get rid of the cameras. They were in use for eight years and triggered hundreds of complaints from drivers who said they were improperly ticketed.
