Red Light Cameras Approved For Albany
We've been hearing about the possibility of red light cameras coming to intersections of Albany for some time. Well, it's now a reality.
New York State Legislature passed the bill that would allow the city of Albany to purchase and install up to 20 cameras at intersections throughout the city.
If you are photographed running a red light, you could face up to a $50 fine. If the fine goes unpaid, an additional $25 will be tacked on. On the plus side, there won't be any points added to your drivers license and it won't affect your insurance rates.
Now the question becomes, where will the cameras be installed? Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan says the city will start to solicit companies to look at the city's accident data to determine what intersections to install them at.
