Redflex Traffic Systems will say goodbye to Albuquerque in 60 days. Last night, the city council, headed by the efforts of Councilor Dan Lewis, voted to uphold the will of the people and get rid of the city’s red light cameras.
Also gone will be the Redflex “Scamera” vans that take up space on the side of the road and have been known to burst into flames due to over heated electronics.
This decision comes on the heels of an advisory vote by the citizens of Albuquerque last month that favored ending the program.
KQRE has more on this development:

Earlier this week, news came out that Redflex and Las Cruces, NM PD will begin stealing cars as ransom for red light camera fines. The excuse they’re using is that there are too many unpaid tickets and now they’re losing money.

It’s midnight Albuquerque, do you know where your scameras are? The New Mexico city is shutting off more of its cameras because their contract with the scam vendor expires tonight. University studies have shown that, as usual, accidents have gone up at the intersections in which they have been installed.
ABQ would be best advised to leave those menaces shut off and tear them down.
