      Should red-light cameras be installed in Michigan?

      A new bill proposed in the state House would give local governments that option to put cameras at intersections to spot drivers running red lights.

      A new bill proposed in the state House would give local governments the option to put cameras at intersections to spot drivers running red lights.

      The measure was recently introduced by Representative Wayne Schmidt, R-Traverse City, and would give the power to the local governments to decide whether or not they will install the cameras.

      Under the bill, communities would have to put up a sign within 500 feet of the intersection to warn drivers.

      The Detroit News reports that drivers would not see penalties on their insurance or driving record for citations that result from the camera.

      7&4 News will be meeting with Representative Schmidt today to discuss the newly proposed measure.
