Deactivated Traffic Cams!

As of Jan 1, 2019, 65% of red light traffic cameras located outside of school zones have been deactivated. Mayor LaToya Cantrell announced that 20 out of 31 red light traffic cameras will no longer ticket motorists.

These school zone cameras are a part of Cantrell’s restructuring plan: school zone cameras will operate only during school zone hours. The cameras that are functional have been adjusted to ticket during the hours of 7 am to 9 am and 2:45 pm to 4:45 pm. Additionally, they will only ticket on days that school is in session.

Mayor Cantrell intends to uphold the safety benefits of having traffic cameras. She says, “the cameras that have been turned off are in some instances located at intersections where other cameras may remain operational. In these locations, only motorists traveling in the direction of the operational camera will be ticketed but signage will remain posted around the intersection.”

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
Big Easy Magazine
