New Mexico governor signs bill diverting ticket camera profit

An effort to remove incentives to post red-light and speeding cameras in the city of Albuquerque now is law. New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson has signed a bill that funnels profit from the program away from the only city in the state to use the enforcement tool. Albuquerque Mayor Martin Chavez said the rules adopted in the new law, previously SB442, won't change anything. He said the automated cameras will stay because they make roads safer.
