WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- West Palm Beach city commissioners approved 52 more red light cameras at 25 intersections throughout the city.
There are already seven cameras located in several locations.
City leaders plan to examine the new cameras as they're installed.
The fine for running a red light where a camera is present is $158.
The cameras will cost $247,000 a month to operate. However, according to the city, if the money made from tickets does not cover the cost of the cameras, then the city is not obligated to pay for them.
Law enforcement officers believe the cameras will help with traffic safety and will also reduce the number of officers assigned to intersections.
City leaders plan to install the cameras over the next several months.
Story updated to clarify the number of cameras approved by city commissioners.
