What is up with the brown box camera sitting at the high school recording people’s speeds?

Q. – What is up with the brown box camera sitting at the high school recording people’s speeds? I’ve called the municipal court to inquire but they don’t seem to know who is manning it or how to find out. I’ve heard from another resident that it is an outside company fining people and sending a portion of the fine to the TPD but that if you receive a ticket you don’t have to pay it. What exactly is it, where did it come from and why is it here? And who is operating it?

Answer – Thanks for your inquiry.

The speed cameras are placed and operated under the authority of Kaufman County. The City of Terrell has no role in this and the City receives no revenue from the cameras.

Sincerely,

 

Hal Richards, Mayor
