CARY, NC (AP) — Cary officials have axed one of the state’s last red-light traffic camera systems.

The Town Council took the vote with little fanfare or comment on Thursday night. Cary has had red-light cameras at 15 intersections around town.

Officials say the town will continue to issue citations for up to two weeks as it voids its contract with Redflex, the Australia-based company that administers camera systems.

Cary’s manager recommended nixing the system last month, saying it was a drain on staff time and that state laws increasingly restricted uses of such systems.

The vote means that Raleigh, Knightdale and Wilmington are North Carolina’s three remaining municipalities with photo enforcement traffic systems.
