Peggy Gibson of Huron says she was disappointed to watch her bill prohibiting traffic cameras die by a narrow margin in a Senate committee on Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014 in Pierre. The bill would have kept local governments from using cameras with radar detectors to ticket drivers for speed and red light violations.
