Ruling on Clarksville's Red Light Cameras
By Chris Taylor
Clarksville, TN – A Clarksville judge has dismissed motions to throw out traffic camera evidence from the city's red light monitoring system. Judge Charles Smith yesterday reaffirmed the city's right to use the cameras. A defense attorney had argued the system is unconstitutional because the company that operates the cameras violates a state private investigations statute, making evidence inadmissible in court. The Clarksville Leaf Chronicle reports Judge Smith cited prior cases determining the cameras were constitutional and are specifically authorized by state law.
