More Traffic Cams Considered for Medford Area Drivers
The Medford police department is proposing adding traffic cameras at four additional intersections. The city now has red light cameras installed at McAndrews and Biddle roads, and at Stewart Avenue and Barnett Road.
Police Chief Tim George proposed to the city council adding cameras at Jackson Street and Riverside Avenue, Table Rock Road and North Pacific Highway, Stewart and Columbus Avenues and at Highway 62 and Vilas Road.
The council gave the go-ahead to gather more information about the program and bring it back for possible approval at a later time.
The city derived $58,526 from the program in 2012. Chief George pointed out it is not a huge revenue stream, itís a public safety issue.
