Red-light camera bill OKs use for public safety

SACRAMENTO, Calif.

SB1303 also requires that local governments post warning signs within 200 feet of an intersection where cameras are placed. The bill was written by Sen. Joseph Simitian, a Democrat from Palo Alto.

The measure passed unanimously yesterday and now goes to the assembly. Last year, Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a similar bill, saying the red-light camera program should be overseen by local officials.
