TUCSON - The city of Tucson says it will begin testing photo radar and red light cameras next week.
The city is the latest in the state to install photo radar and red light cameras in an effort to slow down drivers and prevent accidents.
City officials say they have signed a contract with American Traffic Solutions to install and operate eight red light cameras and one photo-radar speed enforcement van. The van will be deployed to school zones, known speeding areas and intersections with speeding issues.
Fines for running a red light in Tucson are $273, and speeding tickets start at $147 and can go up to $357.
