WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - Officials in White Plains say the city doesn’t have a start date for its new red light camera program or an estimate on its cost.

The Journal News reports (https://lohud.us/1OQMgBI ) New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo gave final approval to the city last month to install cameras at up to 12 intersections for five years.

Karen Pasquale, senior adviser to Mayor Tom Roach, says White Plains officials have just started discussing the program internally and have no timetable for its implementation.

White Plains, Yonkers, Mount Vernon and New Rochelle are the only cities in Westchester County authorized to use the equipment.

In White Plains, a violation will cost up to $50 but will not result in points on a driver’s license. Revenue will go toward funding pedestrian and bicycle improvements.
