Santa Fe advisory committee green-lights speed cameras

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A resolution to bring back speed cameras to the Capital City is getting the green light, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican.

Tuesday night, a city advisory committee endorsed the use of unmanned speed-monitoring equipment to ticket motorists caught on camera driving too fast.

Originally, the idea was shot down in March.

The police department presented lower fines of $50 for driving over 10 miles an hour and $100 for going five over in a construction or school zone.

The proposal still has to reach more committees before it reaches the mayor and city council. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
