Georgia city considers removing red light cameras

ROSWELL, Ga. — An Atlanta suburb might scrap its red light cameras, which are designed to nab motorists who run red lights.

Roswell transportation director Steven Acenbrak tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the number of crashes before the cameras were installed are virtually the same as after the cameras were put in place.

City officials say the cameras are also losing money.

Authorities say that after generating close to $1.6 million in profits the first three years, the city’s traffic camera program has lost about $26,000 over the past two years.

Roswell’s city council is expected to consider removing them at a meeting later this month.
