At my town hall event this evening, I presented a study of Garland’s red light camera system.
The study is located here: http://www.robertjsmithtx.com/redlightcams/Red_Light_Camera_Study.pdf
I’ve been asked what prompted this study. The answer is simple. Whenever a program is created that the voters didn’t specifically request and costs the taxpayers money, I think that it’s worth analyzing. Neither my wife nor I have received a red light citation, so this is not a personal issue for me. It’s simple due diligence.
This issue has been referred to the City Council’s public safety committee where it will be presented early next year.
There are additional sections at the end of the document that aren’t filled in yet. I will add to the document as it winds its way through the legislative process.
