Killeen’s seven red-light cameras from its defunct traffic photo enforcement program were removed from city intersections Tuesday morning.

According to residents, the cameras were removed at intersections along Central Texas Expressway from South Fort Hood Street to South W.S. Young Drive at around 9:15 a.m. by workers in unmarked black vehicles.

The city’s red-light program was killed by City Council consensus in April. The cameras were originally scheduled to be removed by Redflex Traffic Systems, the Chicago-based private company maintaining the cameras, by Sept. 30. | 254-501-7567

It is excellent to see the for-profit highway-robbery racket cameras removed. Red light cameras should be illegal in every state, as they are in some already. They are always for-profit rackets, not safety programs. See our website for how the for-profit rackets ticket mostly safe drivers for profits, not safety.
