DENVER — Red-light cameras and photo-radar vans are going to be in Denver for another few years.
The Denver City Council on Monday signed a new $6.4 million contract to keep them around.
The council voted 10 to 1 to extend the contract for five more years, which will include upgrades and a possible expansion of the current system, Denver7 partner The Denver Post reported.
Denver Police told the Post that an expansion of the photo-enforcement system would be “measured” and is not guaranteed.
The cameras bring in millions of dollars for the city. Since 2010, it has netted the city $45 million. The cost to run the system for the past five years was only $3 million.
Fines run from $40 to $80.
