Red light cameras raise revenue in Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Motorists beware, revenues for Colorado Springs are higher than expected this year, thanks in part to red light cameras and photo radar.

Revenue from fines, which includes collections from red-light camera violations and a photo radar enforcement program, is projected to be 14 percent higher than budgeted.

The city expected to collect more than $5 million but now projects $6 million in revenue from all types of fines, an $800,000 increase, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette.

Mayor Steve Bach said red light cameras should be used only for improving public safety, not to raise revenue.
