The City of Plano operated a traffic safety program that used red light cameras as a method of enforcement and deterrence since 2006.
On June 2, 2019, Governor Abbott signed House Bill 1631 which immediately prohibited the use of a traffic signal enforcement system, but allows Cities to continue with their current contracts. We respect the decision of our elected officials and immediately started the process to suspend our red light camera program to comply with the law. The Plano Police Department’s contract with the vendor provides the ability to terminate the contract based on a change in the law. We are exercising our right to terminate the contract and working out the details with the vendor. As of May 31, 2019, there will be no further notices issued related to the red light camera program.
