NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – As the city looks to step up enforcement of traffic laws, one New York City councilman has proposed alerting drivers as they approach any of the 150 red light cameras.
Staten Island Republican Vincent Ignizio announced a bill Wednesday that would require the city to post signs near intersections with red light cameras.
“For the city, this is more about revenue generation than it is slowing motorists down and safety,” Ignizio said. “I just think we owe it to the motorists that we let them know that this intersection potentially could cost you a lot of money if you speed through it through the use of technology.
“That’s the case in New Jersey, and it works fine. And I think it ought be here.”
