Paterson to green-light cameras at red lights
Gov. David Paterson is due to sign legislation that will put cameras at 50 of Long Island?s most dangerous intersections.
The cameras will take photographs of cars that run red lights. A ticket and fine will then be sent in the mail. Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi says the red light cameras will bring in much-needed revenues. Both counties hope to decrease the number of accidents on our roads.
Suffolk County Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington (D-Patchogue) says the cameras will make Suffolk safer for all drivers and pedestrians.
