CINCINNATI, June 22 (UPI) -- Cincinnati police have secretly installed cameras at a half dozen city intersections to catch drivers who blow through red lights.
The unannounced test of equipment from Arizona-based Redflex Traffic Systems began May 30. The Cincinnati Enquirer says police have photographs of hundreds of motorists running red lights and making illegal turns -- but for now they won't get tickets.
The cameras operated for about 24 hours during the test.
The City Council's Law & Public Safety Committee plans to permanently install cameras at 10 intersections after the full council approves a contract with Redflex.
The red-light cameras could be operating for real within two weeks.
