In what some are calling a surprise decision, Naperville councilmen voted to turn off the city’s red light cameras.
The device records as the light turns red to catch violators at three key intersections in the city: Ogden and Aurora Avenue, Route 59 and Diehl Road, and
Route 59 and North Aurora Road.
The contract with Redflex Traffic Systems was up for renewal and the Naperville
City Council decided not to keep the nearly $350,000 deal.
The cameras located at the two Route 59 intersections are scheduled to come down due to construction next year. Council decided in a four to four vote that the two tickets a day issued for violators at the remaining intersection, located at Ogden and Aurora Avenue was not worth the cost.
The cameras will be taken offline on January 3rd when the city’s contract comes to an end.
