OAK RIDGE â€” A new state law requires cities to put up “No Turn on Red” signs at intersections where traffic safety cameras are used to fine motorists for not making complete stops before turning right on red.
Oak Ridge is saying no thanks.
City officials announced this week they’ll no longer use traffic safety camera evidence to fine motorists for not completely stopping before turning right on red.
The cameras, however, still will be used to document motorists running the red lights and speeding.
