LATEST UPDATE 6-2-2019
On Saturday, June 1 2019 Governor Abbott signed HB1631 into law. The bill by Representative Jonathan Stickland of Bedford bans red light cameras in Texas. There is some bad information going around the media right now so we need to give you the facts as we know them as it stands right now. We worked closely with the legislators on this bill for years so we do know the real facts.
What passed is a bill that has a grandfather clause allowing certain cities that have red light cameras to operate until the end of the contract. We were opposed to this but it was the best that could come out of the legislature where the camera companies were in survival mode and throwing around a lot of money. The good news is thanks to Representatives Briscoe Cain and Cole Heffner who added an amendment to the grandfather clause it does not apply to any city that has a clause in their contract that allows them to end their contract if the state passes a ban. Our best information is that this means all but a few camera cities will have to shut down their camera programs. We won't know for sure until we see what the cities do.
More good news is that for any remaining city that chooses to keep their cameras they are no longer able to block registrations for unpaid tickets. If you have been following us for awhile you know that you have always been able to get around the block but now there will be no blocks at all and any outstanding registration holds will now be lifted. We hope this will starve out the remaining cameras early since there is no way to enforce the tickets. But again we won't know until we see what the cities do. There will likely be lawsuits to stop the bill from going into effect. We never know what a judge will do.
One big error the media is spreading is that the ban goes into effect in September. That is FALSE. Normally bills do go into effect on September 1 of the year they pass but HB1631 passed with over 2/3rds of both the house and senate voting for it. This means by law it goes into effect the moment the governor signs it which was Saturday June 1st.
That's what we know right now, we will keep you updated as we go. For the most recent info check out our facebook group. And thank you to all who trashed your ticket and fought back!
