New Chattanooga traffic cams ready

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Chattanooga Police Chief Bobby Dodd says city police hope new traffic enforcement cameras will help modify driving behavior.

The $50 tickets will also benefit the vendor by $21 when the fines are paid. The remaining $29 of paid tickets goes to the city. Those funds go to pay for traffic enforcement by the police department and to fund the drivers education program.

The new contract with Miami-based Sensys America Inc. provides four mobile speed cameras that can be used in police cars or mounted on tripods along the streets. There will also be three fixed pole mounted speed cameras and four red light cameras that also can cite speeding. The contract allows for up to 40 cameras.
