McComb to install traffic cameras

MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) - The McComb city board has approved an enforcement ordinance and authorized the mayor to sign a contract with Traffipax to install the cameras.
The cameras, which take two still shots and a 12-second video clip, have bulletproof casings that also withstand changes in salinity or humidity.
A representative of Linthicum, Maryland-based Traffipax who presented the idea to the board in May said speed cameras, which use laser beams to measure the time elapsed as a vehicle travels from one point to another, could be installed as soon as 30 to 60 days.
Red light cameras would need closer to three to four months before they appear on city roads, and six months to a year on roads that require Mississippi Department of Transportation permission.
