House OKs Ban On Red Light Camera Contracts In SD

House OKs Ban On Red Light Camera Contracts In SD
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota House has granted final legislative approval for a bill prohibiting cities and counties from contracting with red light camera companies.

The bill was killed in a Senate committee but was revived and simplified. It goes next to Gov. Dennis Daugaard for final approval.

The cameras photograph traffic violations for ticketing. Cities will be allowed to use the cameras if local law enforcement administers them.

Opponents of the measure say there are no such cameras functioning in the state and the bill is unnecessary.

The bill's sponsor previously said the way the cameras were used by contractors violated due process. The city of Sioux Falls and Redflex Traffic Systems were sued by a South Dakota businessman after he received a ticket for a violation he didn't commit.
