  • Some red-light cameras banned

    ALBUQUERQUE — The New Mexico State Transportation Commission voted unanimously Thursday to ban red-light cameras and mobile enforcement vans on state or federal roads over which it has jurisdiction.

    The policy gives cities 60 days to remove any red-light cameras now operating in areas where the state claims jurisdiction. The policy does not cover the equipment on roads not regulated by the state Department of Transportation.

    The commission said there’s no convincing proof such cameras make streets and highways

    safer.
