Traffic Safety (New devices increase safety at intersections)
Jan. 7: Police can now use speed technology at “red light camera” and high collision locations and where violations are common. This technology tracks a vehicle’s speed as it proceeds through the location and will increase safety at intersections. Information from intersection safety devices can be used to issue tickets for red light and speeding infractions. Use of such devices became legal on Jan. 1 when changes to the Traffic Safety Act took effect.
