Red light camera tickets have been a thorn in the side of us for years. But rejoice! Mayor LaToya Cantrell announced Friday that 20 of 31 red light traffic cameras have been turned OFF! But that’s not excuse to have a heavy foot. You should still be aware of the speed and obey the traffic laws.
City officials said the red light cameras that are in school zones will remain in addition to the 11 that weren’t turned off. Also, the city is continuing to look for school zone locations where the deactivated cameras can be moved.
But here’s is what you REALLY wanna know — the list of locations where the red light cameras REMAIN:
Poydras Street and St. Charles Avenue – east bound
Poydras and Carondelet streets – west bound
Earhart Boulevard and South Carrollton Avenue – west and east bound
South Carrollton Avenue and Banks Street – north bound
Poydras Street and Loyola Avenue – east bound
Henry Clay Avenue and Coliseum Street – north bound
Canal Street and Carrollton Avenue – south and east bound
South Carrollton Avenue and Palmetto Street – north bound
Alright, meow. Obey the law and be safe out on the roads.
