bill permitting police in Rhode Island to rig cameras on roadways
as a deterrent to red-light runners is dead for the year.
written by Rep. Peter T. Ginaitt, D-Warwick, would have allowed
state and local authorities to use cameras for enforcement of
the proposal, a red-light running vehicle’s license plate number
would be captured on camera and a ticket mailed to the registered
owner, Ginaitt wrote. Violators could be fined $100.
bill was still in the House Judiciary Committee when the regular
session ended last month.
