High Point, NC to Suspend Red Light Camera Program
High Point, North Carolina red light camera operations will be suspended at the end of the month.

Stoplight cameras in High Point, North Carolina will go dark at the end of the month after recent losses in Guilford County court. City Manager Strib Boynton said that he would not renew the city's contract with Peek Traffic, which operates the cameras, when it expires in ten days.

A corporate spokesman for Peek Traffic said the company does not plan to remove the red light camera equipment.

The city does not wish to continue the program because the court has made it a money-loser. A Superior Court judge ruled that the state constitution requires that 90 percent of the program's revenue must go to the school system.

"We'll protect the equipment," [Peek Traffic director of automated traffic enforcement Russ] Colthorpe said, but he declined to detail how the company would take to do that.
