Greenville North Carolina Puts Hold on Camera System
Greenville, North Carolina suspends implementation of its new red light camera system pending the outcome of a key court case.

Greenville North Carolina
Faced with a Guilford County, North Carolina court ruling that found red light camera systems violated the state constitution, Greenville has decided not to begin issuing tickets with its new system. A judge is expected to rule on how much money for the camera systems can go to "administrative costs". In one case, that amount was set at 10 percent. This is a problem for Greenville whose contract specifies 64 to 94 percent of income will go to Redflex, an Australian camera contractor.


Article Excerpt:
In a case involving High Point's camera system, a judge ruled recently that state law requires that "clear proceeds" from red-light tickets issued under the automatic camera system go to the local public school system.

As with Greenville, the operator of High Point's red-light camera system receives most of the fees from the tickets.
