New Orleans Judge Rules That Traffic Cameras Violate City Charter
Posted on Oct 1, 2010 in Local Issues, Traffic
Judge Paulette Irons ruled today that the city’s recently installed Photo Safety Enforcement Program violates the New Orleans city charter due to the fact that it places its administration under the Department of Public Works rather than the Police Department.
Judge Irons indicated that tickets issued after her ruling (today) would be null and void.
It remains unclear at this point whether this spells the end of the program altogether or if it will be assigned to the Police Department.

—-UPDATE!!——A Court of Appeals issued an emergency stay against Judge Irons’ ruling which makes tickets issued after 10/1/10 STILL VALID. It is unclear at this point what the ultimate result of this ruling will be. Check back here for information as this story develops.
