DOT, Bronx electeds advocate for more red light cameras

Bronx electeds and the city Department of Transportation are joining forces to push for more traffic cameras to ticket vehicles that run red lights. 

The Bronx is home to some of the city’s most dangerous roads. Recent data from the nonprofit Transportation Alternatives showed that the Bronx has the city’s deadliest roadway — East 138th Street — which saw 12 deaths between 2014 and 2023 in just a 1.5-mile stretch.
