A group called Citizens Against Red Light Cameras began mailing out some 20,000 letters to voters in Houston. They Hope to get enough signatures to force a city wide vote on the use of red light cameras in Houston. This could deal a huge blow to Gubernatorial candidate Bill White who helped to start this program in Houston. No use of camera enforcement has ever survived a citizens vote in Texas. The elimination of red light cameras in Houston would indicate another failed program by Bill White to control Texans through Socialist Government/Corporate Cartels which he has supported to increase his campaign contributions.
Houston City Officials claim the cameras work and reduce accidents, while the Houston police disagree and openly admit the current data does not support a reduction in accidents at red light camera intersections which Bill White claimed was the basis for the cameras. This would support the popular opinion in Houston of these devices being used merely to generate revenue for the city.
‘The absolute number of collisions that camera monitored approaches is not decreasing,'” said attorney Paul Kubosh. “Let’s be fair. Let the citizens vote. Give the power to the people to make this decision on whether or not they want to put up with this.”
