Virginia Committee Turns Down Cameras Again
A Virginia legislative committee voted a second time to turn down camera enforcement.

Virginia's House Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee for a second time turned down legislation aimed at saving the state's red light camera programs.

Seven cities will be forced to shut down their photo enforcement programs unless the legislature acts to save the program. Today's action makes that even more unlikely.

Pilot programs that use cameras to catch red light runners in several Virginia localities will end July 1 unless supporters of the technology can find a way to reverse action taken Friday by a legislative committee.
