AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– After voters in Aurora decided to get rid of red light cameras at intersections, the cameras are coming down. Voters cast their ballots in November.

A total of 14 cameras at 10 intersections have been turned off and crews will remove them soon.

The Aurora Police Department is reassigning five staff members who worked with those cameras.

The red light cameras generated more than $2 million in fines for the City of Aurora in one year.

Comments
  1. James Walker says:

    It was excellent that Aurora residents and visitors are no longer subject to the predatory for-profit racket of red light cameras. Aurora became the 37th city in 41 public votes to end the use of speed and/or red light cameras. The $2 million in a year came almost entirely from safe drivers who endangered no one, using deliberately faulty engineering of the lights and predatory enforcement practices aimed at giving most tickets to safe drivers. It was larceny, now ended.
