A simple, but money-losing, red-light cam solution for DV

Filed under: Uncategorized — cedarhilleditor @ 9:43 pm

As I noted in this week’s paper, the vast majority of red-light camera citations come from just two intersections: southbound 67 service road at Cockrell Hill and Danieldale roads.

And, it also seems apparent that, if not a no-tolerance policy, Duncanville has a small-tolerance policy on stop-line issues.

Solution? Simple, camera-enforceable, and black and white.

But, it would probably cost the City of Red-Light Cams about $600,000.

Ban right-on-red turns at those two sites.

So, what say you, City Manager Kent Cagle? Mayor David Green? Police Chief Brown?

If safety is the ultimate concern, banning right-on-red turns WILL take care of that.
