(WVLT) -- A bill to remove automated red light camerad throughout Texas is gaining momentum in the state's legislature. More than 100 Texas lawmakers say the state's red light cameras should come down.

"It hasn't been Republican-Democrat. It's really the people of Texas stepping up and saying we want something done. We are sick of this. we don't like the idea of big brother in Texas," says Texas State Representative Johnathan Stickland.

Rep. Stickland says he has evidence which shows red light cameras tend to increase the number of accidents at intersections where they are installed.
