    Bill Summary

    This bill makes several changes and additions to present law concerning the use of traffic enforcement cameras as follows:

    (1) This bill refers to the use of "traffic enforcement cameras" instead of a "traffic light signal monitoring system";
    (2) This bill requires that a POST-certified law enforcement officer must make a determination as to whether a violation has occurred based on a review of video evidence rather than authorizing any employee of the applicable law enforcement office to make that determination;
    (3) This bill requires that the applicable law enforcement agency must mail any notice of violation or traffic citation that is based solely on video evidence from a traffic enforcement camera. A notice of violation that is sent by a private vendor will be invalid; and
    (4) This bill removes the present law requirement that, prior to the assessment of any additional penalty or other costs for nonpayment of a traffic violation or citation that is based solely on evidence obtained from a surveillance camera installed to enforce or monitor traffic violations, a second notice must be sent by first class mail to the registered owner of the motor vehicle.
