Ticket Cam Alert Tennessee: Bluff City speed cameras will be turned off Jan. 8 due to state law

The unpopular speed cameras on U.S. Highway 11E in Bluff City — which netted the city and the company that operates them millions of dollars over a decade — will be turned off Jan. 8 due to a state law. The Tennessee Freedom from Traffic Cameras Act went into effect in 2015 to prohibit speed cameras statewide except for in school zones and S-curves, but it allowed localities to keep cameras until the contracts they had with the companies that operate them expired. Bluff City had just renewed its contract with American Traffic Solutions before the law took effect. The law doesn’t apply to red light cameras.
