New Red Light Cameras In DuPage County?

WHEATON, Ill. (WBBM) -- DuPage County Board members are considering new plans for red light cameras.

As WBBM Newsradio 780's John Hultman reports, County Board members aren't exactly head-over-heels about the idea of using cameras to ticket motorist caught disobeying traffic signals.

Nevertheless, the Daily Herald reports the board's transportation committee will start talking about a policy for the cameras in about two weeks.

One idea would allow cameras only at intersections where at least five crashes occur a year.

Some board members insist the motivation is not to collect revenues.

If the policy is adopted, each location will be reviewed and approved by the county.
