ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Albuquerque's City Council moved to give the green light to the temporarily switched-off red light camera program.
The city still has to negotiate with the adminstrator of the red light program, Phoenix based Redflex, to turn the cameras back on, but the Mayor's office thinks that will happen within a week.
The camera's will be modified from their previous ticketing program.
The number of cameras will be dropped from 17 to 14. The cameras will also no longer nab speeders, just red light runners.
The contract extension will last 4 months.
At that point, the city intends to solicit offers from other contractors to administer the red light program with reduced costs to the city.
Before Mayor R.J. Berry shut the cameras down last week, they had been losing $30,000 per month.
While the roads were looking clearer Friday morning in the Albuquerque area, appearances can be deceiving
