Red Bank officials say town is fine without cams
May 21, 2013 12:31 GMT
RED BANK, Tenn. (AP) -- Now that traffic enforcement cameras have been gone from a Hamilton County city for four months, officials are saying just how much they are not missed.
Red Bank ended its contract with a provider in January. Citizen complaints drove a 4-1 city commission vote to end the contract after six years and 69,000 citations.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/16IXoMI ) reported that officials said the number of traffic crashes hasn't increased, there have been fewer tickets issued and anecdotal evidence indicates there is more traffic coming into the city.
Mayor John Roberts said people continue to tell him they're glad the cameras are gone
Roberts said the cameras made the city appear unwelcoming and that discouraged new businesses.
