MONROE, Washington — Red light cameras are on their way out of Monroe.
Mayor Robert Zimmerman sent a letter Wednesday to Arizona-based Redflex Traffic Systems saying the city would not renew its contract later this year when it expires.
The Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/15Oa18M) Mukilteo activist Tim Eyman led opposition to the cameras since they were installed in 2011. He calls them a "money grab."
Citizens voted against the automatic ticket system in advisory elections, but courts said they were not binding.
