Red-Light Cameras Disappearing in North Carolina

With the town of Cary's decision to end its camera program, only three municipalities still use the devices


CARY—With little fanfare, Cary officials axed one of the state's last red-light photo enforcement systems on Thursday night. The motion to discontinue the town's SafeLight program drew no comment from the Cary Town Council.

"A motion, and a second … discussion?" said Mayor Harold Weinbrecht as the council reviewed a slate of consent items. Then: "Motion carries unanimously."

The town will continue to issue citations for up to two weeks as it voids its contract with Redflex, the Australia-based company that administers camera systems across the world.
