1/19/2017Alaska Politicians Seek To Revive Banned Red Light Camera Program
Local politicians in Anchorage, Alaska propose ballot measure undermining the photo enforcement ban drafted and enacted by voters in 1997.
Residents of Anchorage, Alaska were third in the nation to rise up against the use of automated ticketing machines. In 1997, a citizen-led signature drive gave the public a chance to weigh in on the issue at the ballot box, and a majority decided to adopt a comprehensive prohibition on the use of red light cameras and speed cameras. A handful of city politicians intend to undo this ballot measure in a process that begins this Friday.
