Moultrie -  Moultrie City Council members approved a proposal to install digital cameras at the intersection of Veterans Parkway and First Avenue Southeast. If you run a red-light or are speeding through the intersection, the camera will take a picture and you'll get a bill in the mail.

Malcolm Smith recently moved to Southwest Georgia from Savannah, where similar traffic lights are installed. He thinks they are a great deterrent for bad drivers. He says, "To me have worked, because they stop people from running red lights, stop people from accidents and once you get that little notice in the mail that you ran that red light and you see that ticket in there, and have your license tag in there, you'll stop it next time."

You can give your opinion about the cameras at a public hearing Tuesday, March 7th at six o'clock at City Hall in Moultrie.
