MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - A metro Atlanta county plans to add 25 new traffic cameras to monitor traffic.

The Marietta Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/169IZeh) that Cobb County commissioners voted this week to hire a San Francisco-based company to find the best locations for the cameras in the northern part of the county.

David Montanye, traffic operations division manager of Cobb’s Department of Transportation, said the aim is to give the county’s traffic center employees a bird’s-eye view of driving conditions.

Drew Raessler, the traffic engineer for northeast Cobb County, said installation of the new cameras is set to begin in late 2015.

Faye DiMassimo, director of the county’s Department of Transportation, said the cameras aren’t the kind used to photograph people running red lights. She said the footage will only be seen by traffic engineers.
