Officials agree to traffic camera compromise | News
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB)- Drivers in seven Louisiana cities, including Baton Rouge could be getting a break when it comes to traffic cameras.
Two state lawmakers are backing away from bills that would have put the future of the traffic camera programs in the hands of voters.
City officials in Baker, Zachary and Baton Rouge agreed to a compromise that will allow a six to 10 mile-per-hour pad over the limits in the areas monitored by cameras.
Lawmakers warn if the cities do not abide by the compromise, they will re-introduce a bill that would require the cameras be disconnected until voters can give their two cents.
