PRESCOTT, Ariz. City Council members appear to be united on the need for a photo red-light system or photo radar for streets in Prescott.
The council opposed a photo red light system during budget deliberations in 2005, but the idea made the list of city management's top six goals for the coming year.
Police Chief Randy Oaks had brought up the idea of photo radar and photo red light during the City Council's goal-setting retreat this past weekend.
Oaks says he doesn't have enough officers to dedicate to traffic enforcement.
Mayor Rowle Simmons, who previously opposed the idea, says he changed his mind after seeing the results of traffic cameras on Scottsdale's stretch of Loop 1-0-1 freeway.
A recent study shows Scottsdale's freeway cameras are slowing down motorists and appear to be reducing the number of crashes and injuries.
