N.Y. Mayor Wants More Traffic Light Cameras

Ad Feedback

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants red light cameras installed on every street corner.

Bloomberg says the move will help prevent traffic accidents, save lives and generate revenue, the New York Daily News reported.

Last year, the city's 150 red light cameras brought in about $55 million in fines. Bloomberg wants to up the number of cameras to 225.

The mayor says it's the best option for the city.

"We cannot afford to put a copy on every corner," Bloomberg said. "We're going to have to do more with technology."

In June, the state Senate voted to increase the number of cameras, but the Democratic-controlled Assembly did not pass the legislation.
