Lt. Mike Pryor of the Tucson Police Department tells us that cameras to bust speeders and red-light runners should be up and running by mid-August.
It's taking a bit longer than Pryor had hoped to get the program underway, but the city now has a contract with American Traffic Solutions of Scottsdale. The company is surveying several Tucson intersections to determine how to set up cameras, which will be set to catch people who run the red lights or speed.
The pilot program will also include a mobile van to nab speeders.
