Red Light Money Left Alone

Money from red-light camera tickets still must be used only on traffic safety projects. Spokane City Councilmembers made the decision last night to reject a proposal that would have removed restrictions on how red-light revenue is spent.

The decision means the city is out of compliance with the law though, after the council last year approved spending $20,000 of camera revenues on graffiti and $50,000 on the volunteer policing program.

The Spokesman-Review tells us how this discrenspancy will be handled.
