The Costa Mesa City Council will vote on whether to install red light cameras at four new intersections throughout the city at tonight’s meeting. Data from the four existing photo-enforced intersections in Costa Mesa shows that they don’t make or lose any money for the city. They have also been statistically shown to cause more accidents; however, they reduce the number of injuries sustained during the accidents. City officials attribute the increase in accidents to people stopping suddenly to avoid getting tickets, and subsequently being rear-ended.

Having failed to get a city charter initiative included on the county's ballot, the Costa Mesa City Council is looking to spend more than $150,000 to put on its own election June 5. The council will meet Tuesday night to consider whether it will host a special election concurrently with the statewide primary. "We need to become a charter city to get the financial tools we need," said Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer, the proposed charter's most vocal proponent. Costa Mesa residents would vote on having the city switch to a charter - essentially a city constitution - at the same polling place they'd go to for the state and national primaries.
