Mount Prospect, IL Candidates Say ‘Stop’ To Red Light Cameras

Mount Prospect’s stance on using red light cameras as a way to generate revenue has remained a solid “no” for years.

Village officials have been consistent in their beliefs that the systems, which take photos of vehicles that illegally turn against red lights, and issue fines against the drivers, do not do enough to enhance safety.

Not one of the six candidates running for three, four-year seats on the village board April 2 believe red light cameras should be installed in Mount Prospect. One candidate, however, would be open to exploring other perspectives and solutions regarding red light cameras.
