Wallkill seeks state approval to install red light cameras, again

TOWN OF WALLKILL – Town officials in Wallkill have asked the state legislature for several years to allow it to install cameras at busy intersections to nail motorists who jump red lights. Lawmakers in Albany have yet to give their approval.

This year they are trying again, said Town Supervisor Edward Diana.

“We feel that safety and security is one of our number one issues that we have to address at the town level and certainly anytime you can help people’s safety on the roads is something that I think is a plus for the town and for the people that live in the town and drive through this town, so we are going to ask the state once again for legislation to allow us to put up cameras,” Diana said.

While previous Wallkill Town Boards considered placing red light cameras in the Route 211 shopping district, Diana said they would consider four of five on Route 211, possibly by Orange Regional Medical Center and Dunning Road.
