Governor signs law requiring red light camera signs
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana motorists will soon know the locations of area red light cameras as they approach intersections.
Gov. John Bel Edwards' office announced Tuesday that the governor has signed a bill to require municipalities to post clear signs that indicate an intersection red light camera within 500 feet of each camera. It will take effect Aug. 1.
The bill from Sen. Troy Carter, a New Orleans Democrat, bars local parishes that fail to post the signs from collecting traffic violation fines from drivers who are asked to pay for running intersections with the red light cameras.
The measure received overwhelming support from the House and the Senate.
