Oceanside City votes to remove red light cameras
OCEANSIDE (KUSI) – Oceanside City voted Wednesday night to turn off its red light cameras. The vote was 3 to 2, in favor of removing red light cameras.
The city now has to give the operator a 45-days notice, so all the cameras should be gone by the end of the year.
Councilman Gary Felien from the City of Oceanside wanted to remove them from the city’s limit.
Felien had asked that the issue be put on the council’s agenda for discussion.
Felien said he received numerous complaints about the cameras.
When removed, Oceanside would join other cities like Escondido, Poway, San Diego and Santee in ending red light cameras.
Cities have shut down their red light cameras due to privacy concerns and falling revenues.
