Asking questions about the red light cameras

On Tuesday, Matt Stiles announced he was going to have the opportunity to ask the powers that be about the city's red light camera program. He's done his thing, and you can listen to the answers he got here (MP3). It's only about four minutes long, so give it a listen. The main thing I got out of it was a statement by Executive Assistant Chief Martha Montalvo that she is meeting this month with a Rice U engineer and a representative from the Texas Transportation Institute to talk about the impact of the cameras on safety at these intersections. I hope that means that their finding will be made public shortly thereafter. Take a listen and see what you think. Or just read this City Hall blog post, which has some stats about the cameras.
