Mayor Bloomberg wants to blanket the city with red light cameras – and maybe even publish the names of scofflaws who blow through intersections.
“I think we should have ‘em on every corner if we could,” the mayor said of the controversial cameras that trigger tickets to drivers caught running red lights.
“If people didn’t go through red lights, you’d save a lot of lives of elderly and kids,” Hizzoner told reporters Monday during a press conference.
Bloomberg was responding to a Daily News report on the $52 million in fines the city issued last year to drivers caught by cameras – really a $55 million haul with penalties included.
Bloomberg wants Albany to increase the number of cameras permitted on city streets to 225, up from the current 150.
