FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Nearly 700 tickets have been issued in Fayetteville since the city began using cameras to capture people running red lights last month.

Area media outlets report that four new red light cameras went on line l=in July. When motorists are caught driving through the red lights, they are sent a $100 ticket.

In addition to the nearly 700 violations, officials are reviewing video from 600 other incidents where motorists may have cruised through red lights.

Officials say that in a previous red-light camera program which the city ended nine years ago, about 1,000 citations were issued each month.

American Traffic Solutions, the Tempe, Arizona, company that operates the cameras, gets $35 from every ticket issued. The rest of the money goes to the Cumberland County school system.
