Redflex Loses Another Contract

The city of Gardena, CA, wised up today and voted UNANIMOUSLY to end the city’s red light camera program operated by Redflex. As reported by DailyBreeze.com:

Mayor Paul Tanaka said he supported the staff’s recommendation to stop using the cameras because it is too costly and doesn’t seem to be reducing traffic collisions.

“First and foremost, the financial hole that this is creating, in addition to the lack of evidence that the program is in fact being effective,” Tanaka said.

Furthermore, a Gardena police study of the program found no substantial decrease in traffic collisions at the red-light camera intersections since the system was installed in 2006.

Congratulations Gardena!
