Campaign for Liberty calls on Austin, Texas to refund red light camera tickets issued without complying with state law.
Local activists are stepping up their fight against the questionable use of red light cameras in Texas. On Friday, the Campaign for Liberty urged its members in the Austin area to pressure the city council into refunding eight years worth of automated citations. The free market group points out that the city has failed to meet the minimum requirements for operating a camera program, as spelled out in state law.
“Austin officials thought they would never get caught,” the email to members said. “They figured they could just keep pocketing their illegal money for as long as they wanted to. I am asking you to prove them wrong.”
