Arizonans will not get a chance to decide if they think photo radar and red light cameras are a good idea.

On a 15-14 vote, the Senate on Tuesday killed a proposal to put the question about the legality of photo enforcement on the November ballot. The chances of the measure being resurrected are slim, as this is the same time the Senate killed the plan.

Tuesday’s vote came even after Sen. Frank Antenori, R-Tucson, offered an escape clause of sorts: He said he would amend the measure in the House to allow voters in each city and county to decide for themselves if they want to keep photo enforcement even if the statewide ban were to be enacted.

Sen. Paula Aboud, D-Tucson, said people running red lights kill and injure other motorists. She said it was wrong of lawmakers to even propose to deprive communities of a tool that promotes public safety.
