Louisiana Parish Traffic Camera Program Continues

May 17, 2012

The Lafayette, La., traffic camera enforcement program will remain in place.

The City-Parish Council voted 6-3 Tuesday against a proposal by councilmen Jared Bellard, Andy Naquin and William Theriot to end the automated enforcement program.

The Advocate reports they were the only council members to vote in favor of taking the cameras down.

The cameras snap photos of a driver and license plate when a vehicle speeds through a monitored intersection or runs a red light. The alleged violator is mailed a citation.

The program also employs two speed vans, vehicles equipped with radar and cameras that are dispatched throughout the city.
