CS Touts Red Light Program, Expansion

Sunday on News 3's 10 at Ten, College Station officials discussed their red light camera program, which is expanding to include five new cameras at three intersections in the city.

Traffic Engineer Troy Rother said the city is opposed to legislation currently being discussed in Austin that would outlaw red light cameras across the state.

Rother also touted a reduction in accidents at intersections in the city since the beginning of the program, and said it was the prevention of those accidents that would drive the future of the program.

Phase 2 will add additional cameras at three intersections along Texas Avenue.

There's more information on the program at the city's website, which is linked below. You can also view videos of wrecks at city intersections from the current set of cameras.
