Sacramento County's Board of Supervisors is going to consider a new red light camera contract at today's meeting. The new deal could make it more likely you will get a ticket.
In a "Memorandum of Understanding" up for a vote at today's supervisors meeting there's a list of enforcement criteria for issuing tickets.
On that list is says that a traffic light has to have been red for a least 0.1 seconds before your car enters the intersection to make it a violation.
That's a change from 0.2 seconds used currently.
The proposed multi-year contract with Redflex Traffic Systems is being challenged by American Traffic Solutions saying their company is the better choice.
They point to a bribery incident in Chicago involving Redflex.
Redflex, who has the current contract, says they have cleaned house since then, and those responsible have been fired.
