CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - The Chandler City Council has approved the use of red-light traffic cameras for at least the next five years.

City councilors voted 5-2 last week to award a $2.5 million contract to American Traffic Solutions Inc. for photo enforcement. The cameras are located at a dozen intersections primarily on the city’s busiest streets.

The contract includes an option for one 5-year extension after it expires in 2021.

The current contract ends in April. Some of the cameras will be relocated then.

The Arizona Republic (https://bit.ly/1P2DII1 ) reports that the city has collected more than $6 million in fines since it began using the cameras in 2006.

Police Chief Sean Duggan says most of that money covers expenses and other traffic-safety enhancements.
