CITY OF TONAWANDA, NY (WKBW) - Red light cameras could soon be watching your every move in the City of Tonawanda, where lawmakers have approved a measure to install the cameras at three intersections.

Broad and Delaware, Twin City Highway and Young, Seymour and Niagara have been named as the three intersections.

The company, Redflex, which operates the cameras will operate the cameras with no cost to taxpayers.

Instead, the company will keep the first $4,350 per camera per month, with the remaining cash going directly into city coffers.

Rochester is the only other municipality in Western New York that uses the technology.

The City of Buffalo was considering using red light cameras, but backed off on plans.

The measure still requires state approval in Albany.
