A measure slated for the November ballot that asks voters if they want to banish red-light cameras in Murrieta is in jeopardy because of a lawsuit filed recently that questions whether residents have the right to make that decision.
The lawsuit, filed last Tuesday at the courthouse in downtown Riverside on behalf of longtime Murrieta resident Steve Flynn, essentially alleges that citizens don't have the legal authority to change traffic laws; it seeks to remove the initiative from the ballot.
"I just want to protect people," said Flynn, who as chairman of the Public Safety and Traffic Commission in the mid-2000s was instrumental in the effort to install red-light cameras in the city. "This is about saving lives."
