Louisiana: East Baton Rouge Metro Council Gives Green Light to Traffic Camera Contract

The East Baton Rouge Metro Council gave the green light to the parish’s traffic camera program.

Council members agreed to renew the contract for one year.

“The mayor’s supposed to come back and talk to council between each one and I just think it’s the right thing to do. one thing if we could go back and change the ordinance, I would absolutely want to see every single that comes from these red light cameras to go to these police officers to bring up their poor salary to at the least the rest of the country,” said Councilman Matt Watson.
