Suffolk launches red light camera program
Suffolk County recently installed its first red light camera at an intersection in Ronkonkoma police say is notorious for serious accidents.
County officials are hoping the camera at LIE exit 59?s south service road and Ocean Avenue will not only cut down on accidents but generate a lot of revenue.
?The main intention is to stop right angle accidents,? Suffolk County Public Works Commissioner Gilbert Anderson says.
Suffolk expects to add cameras to more than 30 intersections by the end of the year.
For the next 30 days, only warning tickets will be given out to drivers who run the light. After that, violators will get citations and a $50 fine.
