Ward 4 City Council member Shirley Scott will hold a community meeting about photo traffic enforcement at 7 tonight
The Tucson Police Department has proposed the use of a mobile camera to enforce speed limits in work and school zones and other high-risk areas. Communities nationwide, including metro Phoenix, also use cameras to enforce traffic signals.
Under the Police Department plan, a camera in a van would capture pictures of offending drivers and their license plates. The van would operate during a one-year trial period.
Town halls will be held in each ward before the City Council considers a photo enforcement ordinance. A public hearing will also be held on the proposed ordinance.
Today’s meeting will be in the multipurpose room of the Clements Center, 8155 E. Poinciana Drive. A police representative will give a short presentation about photo enforcement, followed by a Q&A session.
