Exclamation List of Thirteen States Where Automated Ticketing is Banned

Article: List of Thirteen States Where Automated Ticketing is Banned

Montana Governor Brian SchweitzerWhen Governor Brian Schweitzer (D) signed a bill banning red light cameras on Tuesday, Montana became thirteenth on a growing list of states that prohibit photo enforcement. The following list includes links to the full text of each statute or legal decision prohibiting the use of photo radar or red light cameras.

Some measures require explanation. In Arkansas, for example, state law authorizes police to use a photo radar gun if the officer personally delivers the ticket at the time of the violation. This does no more than allow a photograph to be used in conjunction with a traditional traffic stop and serves as an unconditional ban on automated enforcement. In Utah, the legislature has placed so many restrictions on the use of photo radar -- specifically, banning outsourcing of the ticketing process to private, for-profit companies -- that no city uses speed cameras. This serves as an "effective ban" on photo enforcement.

The list excludes states like Florida where photo enforcement is illegal but local jurisdictions ignore the law in the hopes that they will not be sued before the legislature retroactively approves their use of photo ticketing.
