New video system to be implemented in traffic lights
Monday, October 7th, 2002.
SAN JUAN (AP) – The Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) will be implementing a video system that will record drivers who fail to stop at a red light.
"We are in the process of acquiring it [the system]. We are going to begin with the most dangerous intersections in the metropolitan area,” said DTPW Secretary Jose M. Izquierdo.
According to published reports, the official believes that this kind of system will have a positive result on the island streets.
"The reduction in deaths with this type of system is documented. And once citizens get used to being watched they behave better,” the secretary said.
The initiative is expected to bring considerable revenue to the gneral fund, since the fines imposed by police agents for not stopping at a red light vary from $40 to $75.
