Colorado Board Issues Red-Light Camera Warning
A case of unlicensed engineering practice and red-light camera installation strikes again—this time in Colorado. In August, the Colorado State Board of Licensure for Architects, Professional Engineers, and Professional Land Surveyors issued a cease and desist order to Redlex Traffic Systems for practicing engineering without a license in the state.
According to the document, Redlex Traffic Systems provided professional services to the city and county of Denver in July 2008 in violation of state engineering law. Firm staff prepared design drawings for red light photo enforcement, which included design layout for intersection improvements with detailed construction notes and details about installation of related hardware and infrastructure.
If the company disregards the cease and desist, the state attorney general and Denver’s district attorney can take further legal actions. This case is similar to one in which the North Carolina engineering licensing board concluded, after an investigation last year, that the firm American Traffic Solutions Inc., violated the law when it installed red-light cameras without a license to practice in the state.
