i-Team: Speed Cameras Headed to Court?
Thirteen thousand people in the city of Montgomery have gotten one: a mailed speeding ticket from an empty police car, but you wont be getting them any more.
After our investigative story aired in May of 2015, lawmakers passed legislation to do away with the cars, but the fight between the city and the state isn’t over.
The city of Montgomery signed a contract in the summer of 2013 with a private company called American Traffic Solutions. It allowed four police cars equipped with cameras to issue speeding tickets within the city limits.
In the spring of 2016, state legislators repealed the law allowing the cars to operate even though the contract lasts until 2017.
Now mayor strange is saying ATS may sue over breach of contract, though Senator Dick Brewbaker says he knows no litigation will be brought forth against the city.
