Albany city police have announced the sites where red light cameras will be installed.

Last May, city officials took the wraps off a plan to bring red light cameras — which snap photos of vehicles illegally zipping under traffic signals — to Albany's most dangerous intersections. Having gone thru the political process, twenty intersections have been chosen, including Central & Quail just outside WAMC and Central & King, where a pedestrian was struck by a speeding car in February 2013.  5 companies are battling for the contract to install red light cameras - the bidder's proposals are in - officials say there's no set timeline for when the winning vendor will be selected.
