Gov. Brown signs red-light camera reform bill
PALO ALTO, Calif. (KGO) -- Governor Jerry Brown has signed into law two bills that affect Bay Area residents.
One regulates the use of red-light cameras at intersections statewide.
Authored by State Senator Joe Simitian of Palo Alto, this bill specifically prohibits the use of red-light cameras solely to raise revenue for local governments.
It requires that camera locations be based solely on safety considerations.
It also requires adequate signs to notify drivers that the cameras are in use and makes it easier for wrongfully-ticketed drivers to get that ticket cleared.
