New push to stop Albany red light cameras
ALBANY -- Lawmakers are moving forward with the installation of red light cameras in the city. Currently, they are sizing up the intersections where the cameras might be placed.
However, there's a new push to stop the process. Jesse Calhoun, who is running for an Assembly seat, is set to distribute a number of postcards to Albany residents, which look a lot like the red light tickets.
Residents can sign and return the cards so they can be delivered to the Common Council in a show of protest.
Red light cameras take a picture of any car caught in the intersection and automatically sends the owner a ticket in the mail.
