The company that handles our red light cameras is facing accusations of bribery.
A former top executive of the company that provides Albemarle County red light cameras claimed the company bribed officials in a new lawsuit against his employer.
Former Redflex vice president Aaron Rosenberg said the briberies happened in Virginia and twelve other states
Rosenberg claimed gifts and bribes were encouraged by the company.
Albemarle County Supervisor Ken Boyd says that did not happen here.
"I’ve been on board for ten years now and i was here at the time when we decided to go to the red light cameras. And I have complete confidence that nobody was receiving any kind of gratuities or anything like that.”
The first cameras in Albemarle county were installed in 2011 at the intersection of Rio Road and 29.
The county plans to install more lights using Redflex on Pantops.
Richmond, Newport News, Norfolk, Chesapeake and Virginia Beach all use Redflex cameras.
Officials in those localities have said this week that they have not had any illegal dealings with the company.
