JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A proposal to outlaw traffic cameras is gaining momentum at the Mississippi Capitol.
The Senate passed a bill Wednesday that would prohibit the installation of any new cameras to photograph and ticket vehicles that run red lights.
Jackson and Columbus already use the cameras, and Tupelo, Natchez, Southaven and McComb are considering them. The Senate version of the bill says the existing cameras would have to be removed by Oct. 1.

I guarantee the auto industry is paying the city officials to do this. The auto industry makes a fortune off car crashes and wants more and more of them. Every DAY 110 americans are killed by reckless driving but detroit doesn't care about that. If they had their way, drunk driving would be legalized.
