What is the City doing about privacy concerns?

The City ordinance and state statute only allow the cameras to take pictures of the vehicle and the vehicle’s license plate and only while the infraction is occurring. The photos must not show the face of the driver or passengers, and the City must consider installing the cameras in a manner that minimizes the impact of the camera flash on drivers.

Photographs, electronic images or any other personally identifying data from automated traffic safety cameras are for the exclusive use of law enforcement and are prohibited under the statute from release to the public or to the media.
