LAPD Wonders if Red Light Cameras Could Be Used to Catch Other Violations
Texting, a cellphone to your ear, expired registration, not wearing a seat belt, failing to yield to a pedestrian. These are all violations officers notice when enforcing red light violations at intersections with enforcement cameras. In last week's audit of them, the LA Times noticed some language buried in the document indicating that there was opportunity to possibly increase revenues by citing for these other violations.
Per state law, it can't legally be done with these cameras, but police in the San Gabriel Valley city of Arcadia might have the answer. They set up cameras near schools to enforce parents breaking the law to expeditiously drop off and pick up their kids.
