+ - Bankrupt municipality seeks revenue from speeding cameras on interstate->

Submitted by Bill_the_Engineer
Bill_the_Engineer (772575) writes "According to the Mobile Press Register a new speeding enforcement program was adopted by the Prichard City Council today that could generate at least $200,000 a year for the cash-strapped city.

The council, with a unanimous vote, endorsed a program that will add four additional patrol officers to monitor traffic speeds primarily along Interstate 165 and 65 within the Prichard city limits.

The program, administered by South Carolina-based iTraffic Safety, is set to start in January and will be monitored for three months before the city determines whether to increase regulations by adding speed cameras along the interstates. "I think we should try the officers first," Ephriam said. "There could be issues on whether the cameras can accurately depict speeders right now. There are things we have to address with potential liability with the cameras.""
