Transportation committee discusses automated enforcement
Members of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee's Highways and Transit Subcommittee on June 30 heard testimony on the impacts of automated traffic enforcement.
Panelists addressed the challenges and benefits of automated enforcement, including:

- A study by the Federal Highway Administration found red-light cameras save society between $39,000 and $50,000 annually
