TxDOT's Ric Willamson Says Yellow Vulture Camera Testing Postponed Till at Least June 2009

Or, as some call them, Nazi Cams. What in the world changed this arrogant so and so's mind? TxDot was going to go ahead and BREAK THE LAW and test those Yellow Vultures. It also isn't like TxDOT gives a hoot what Texas citizens think. SOMETHING happened behind the scenes that either was not politically good for Rick *39 percent* Perry or some blackmail/bribes. No way that otherwise these cameras wouldn't be used. And frankly, we all better pay attention, eh, since he'll be trying to sneak them back in to use in 2009.

AUSTIN - Texas transportation officials are postponing plans to use cameras to catch speeding drivers.

Transportation Commission Chairman Ric Williamson sent lawmakers a letter Friday saying testing of the $2.5 million pilot program was being postponed until at least June 2009.

The project would have tested using cameras to monitor traffic on Texas 6 near College Station and Interstate 10 in Hudspeth County east of El Paso. Speeding drivers would have received warnings but not tickets.

The state plans came months after the Legislature barred local governments from using automated cameras to issue speeding tickets through the mail.

"How hypocritical is it that the state would force the municipalities to cease and desist use of these devices, and then turn around and employ the technology for the same purposes itself," read a letter by state Rep. Vicki Truitt, who represents northeast Tarrant County.
