Drivers passing through Opelika no longer have to worry about red light cameras. News 3 discovered the cameras were pulled several months ago at all five locations in the city.
Gateway Drive and Fredrick Road and four other significant intersections in Opelika including Gateway Drive and Pepperell Parkway are no longer covered by red light cameras. The cameras were pulled from the city about six months ago meaning citizens are no longer receiving citations for running red unless they are caught by a police officer.
“Our citizens didn’t like them, and there was no major outcry to keep them. They have been gone since June 1st,” said Gary Fuller.
Mayor Gary Fuller says the red light cameras have always been unpopular with citizens.
