LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Lafayette's contract with Redflex that uses cameras to catch speeders and red light runners may be extended a year, until June 4, 2017.

The Advertiser reports an ordinance is on Tuesday's agenda for introduction by Lafayette Consolidated Government's legal department. If the council approves introduction Tuesday, the one-year extension would be up for a final vote at the council's May 17 meeting.

Lafayette officials entered an agreement June 8, 2007, with Redflex to install and operate cameras at select intersections in the city of Lafayette to catch motorists who speed or run through red lights.

The company also uses two vans equipped with cameras to catch speeders in various locations.
