Chattanooga’s mobile traffic cameras ready

By

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.
