TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Members of Tucson Traffic Justice, the group that pushed for the passage of Prop. 201 banning red light cameras, want the cameras taken down right away to avoid confusion.

But the cameras will remain in place for now. According to Tucson police, drivers who run red lights will continue to be flashed by the cameras and they will be fined for the violation.

The group said they have found other ways to stop red-light running.

TPD officials are working with the city to determine an official date to shut down the cameras. The photo radar vans seen parked near schools or at certain intersections also will be shut down as a result of the passage of Prop. 201.

One other thing to be taken into consideration when determining the date the cameras go away is the contract. According to officials the contract for the cameras ends on Nov. 20.
