Albany Common Council approves red light cameras

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. – The city of Albany could be one-step closer to installing red light cameras.

The Albany Common Council approved a resolution Monday in a 10-5 vote urging the state legislature to pass a bill that would allow the city to install and operate cameras at intersections.

Supporters say the cameras are about making the city safer. Opponents think it’s a move to make money.

“The results are demonstrating across the country,” Assemblywoman Patricia Fahy said. “Dramatically reduce the number of accidents.”

Monday’s vote is the first step in ensuring the bill moves ahead in the legislature, though it does not guarantee the bill will pass.
