LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - More than a year and a half after the city got rid of red-light enforcement cameras officials say Las Cruces will not actively try to collect unpaid fines from the cameras.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports (https://bit.ly/1Jxb1Mr ) that City Manager Robert Garza says only $36,000 in unpaid red-light camera fines were paid in the city’s 2015 fiscal year, leaving more than $2.9 million unpaid.

While the city is no longer involved in the collection program, the owner and operator of the cameras Redflex Traffic Systems could contract with another collection agency.

The cameras operated from March 2009 until February 2015.
