ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Red light cameras could soon be a thing of the past if the Albuquerque City Council votes to end the program. The council may decide its fate Monday.
In October, Albuquerque voters said they didn't want them. City councilor Dan Lewis claims the red light cams don't work.
Others say in a tough economy the cameras are nothing more than a money grab.
Councilor Debbie O'Malley said getting rid of red light cams will make intersections unsafe for all and will result in getting rid of speed vans at schools.
Three of the nine city councilors, Ken Sanchez, Lewis and Don Harris are for getting rid of the red light cameras.
O'Malley and Isaac Benton said they want to keep them.
