Gov. Paterson signs red light camera legislation
It's another source of revenue for the city treasury and supporters say it will also help cut down on accidents.
Rochester will install cameras at various intersections soon to catch drivers who run red lights.
Governor David Paterson signed legislation this week allowing traffic cameras in Rochester, Buffalo and Long Island.
Pictures are taken of cars that run red lights and then the owners receive a $50 fine in the mail. The violation does not add points to your license.
Opponents call it another government intrusion.
