No red-light cameras yet

I can put my tar-and-feathers order on hold for now:

The state House put the brakes on a measure, allowing Pittsburgh and other cities including New Kensington and Greensburg to use cameras at red light intersections to nab motorists for traffic violations.

While the state Senate approved it on Saturday, the House adjourned for the summer without taking action. Brett Marcy, spokesman for House Democrats, said the House would not consider it immediately, adding that lawmakers want to review the legislation.

At least they weren’t pretending that red-light cameras are for safety. (They’re not.)
