Pueblo losing money on traffic light cameras

PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) – Traffic cameras that help catch motorists running red lights without the need for a police officer to stop a vehicle aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

Pueblo Traffic Director Pepper Whittlef said the city has paid $90,000 to a private company to operate the three-camera system since it was installed in September while collecting only $70,000 in fines.

In addition to the fee paid to American Traffic Solutions, The Pueblo Chieftain reported that four officers spent at least 73 hours from October to January reviewing video to issue 1,001 citations.
