TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tucson drivers who were caught by photo enforcement this week will not have to pay any fines as the City Council has decided to throw out any ticket generated from the cameras after Tuesday.

Any violations that took place after 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday will no longer be valid.

Tucson voters approved Proposition 201 on election day, banning red light cameras in the city.

Red light cameras were slated to be turned off when election results became official on Nov. 17, but the city has already begun covering up signs warning motorists they are entering the eight intersections currently equipped with photo enforcement systems.

Cameras will still flash, but tickets will no longer be issued.
