LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Traffic camera enforcement in a Louisiana city could be on hold as its local government determines what company will manage the program.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/2rTBE0B ) the contract between Lafayette and Redflex ended on Sunday as government leaders were still negotiating with a competing company to run the traffic cameras.

City-Parish President Joel Robideaux says the cameras will continue taking photos and keep track of violations, although citations will not likely be issued until a new contract is linked. He says all outstanding citations issued through June 4 are considered valid, and others could be issued if a provisional agreement is reached with Redflex.

City-parish figures released in 2016 say more than $10 million in fines have gone uncollected. Robideaux says that’s one reason they’re looking for a new vendor.
