Mayoral candidate LaToya Cantrell says she will suspend traffic cameras

New Orleans Mayoral Candidate Latoya Cantrell generated a lot of buzz this week when she made a campaign promise to suspend the city’s controversial traffic cameras.

While some see them as a necessary evil for safer streets. Cantrell isn’t convinced.

“We really don’t know if it’s actually reducing or making us safer,” Cantrell said.

As Mayor, Cantrell would suspend all traffic cameras, pending a thorough review of their impact on safe driving.

“What we do know, it is putting an added burden on our people who are feeling priced out and nickled and dimed,” Cantrell said.
