Termination of Frisco’s red-light camera program is the result of Gov. Greg Abbott signing House Bill 1631 into law June 1. The bill prohibits “the use of photographic traffic signal enforcement systems.”
Abbott’s initiative to ban red-light cameras dates back to September after releasing a report that detailed four proposed safety polices—one of which sought to ban red-light cameras.
Frisco had up to five red-light cameras at one time. For the remaining camera, Shilson said all current violations being processed will be dismissed. However, processed past violations are unaffected.
“This newly signed law is not retroactive and does not affect past violations,” Shilson said in the statement.
