The Oregon legislature is set to vote Wednesday on a bill that would change how traffic cameras in Oregon work and whether they should be paid.
State Representative Steve Kiel, a Democrat, is the sponsor of the bill.
The bill would change Oregon law to allow drivers to submit traffic citation requests through an online application.
The application would then review the request and make recommendations on whether the citation should be dismissed or not.
If the request is dismissed, the driver would have 30 days to submit another request for payment, which would then be reviewed by the department.
In Oregon, drivers must pay a fine, which could be paid by issuing a citation to the driver.
It is illegal to refuse to pay a citation issued to you.
Kiel said the proposal would give drivers a way to make a payment online without the need to go to a police officer or court.
“The best way to get money is to make payments online through the online form, which means the driver can make payments to the city of Portland directly,” Kiel said.
“People can actually make payments on a phone.”
Kiel was among a group of legislators who helped pass a bill last year that would have required drivers to get permission to drive on the street, or at least sign an affidavit saying they would comply with any law they were driving under.
The state has also moved to ban the use of cameras that have cameras attached to them.
Oregon is among several states that are considering legislation to require drivers to give up their right to vote in the 2018 gubernatorial election.
