Cops: Slow down at Yonkers red lights or risk fines
The city of Yonkers is warning speeders in the city who run red lights that you will now likely be receiving a ticket, whether you see a police officer or not.
New red-light cameras have been installed at various city intersections, and if drivers are caught running red lights, police say that it could cost them $50.
If a car travels through a red light, the camera takes an instant picture, which is then sent to a police officer for analysis. Once the make, model and license plate are determined, a ticket is sent to the violator through the mail. City officials say that not only will the cameras make the streets safer, the program could generate close to $2 million in additional revenue from tickets issued as a result of the cameras.
