Stop-sign camera supporters say they are a valuable tool for public safety.
Meanwhile, several ticketed drivers are planning a class-action suit, claiming that the cameras go against the state vehicle code which requires automated traffic enforcement systems to provide a clear photograph of a vehicle's license plate and the driver.
The cameras are activated when a sensor detects a vehicle moving faster than 7 mph as it approaches a stop. The camera captures the rear license plate of cars that blow through a stop and a ticket is issued to the registered car owner.
There are seven stop-sign cameras scattered in parks along the Santa Monica Mountains. During an 18-month period ending May 31, nearly 35,000 citations were issued and parks collected nearly $2 million.
