New Iberia Traffic Light Cameras
The New Iberia City Council will soon be hearing a bid from a Tennesse-based company to install traffic cameras throughout the city.
KATC's Drakkar Francois spoke with several New Iberia residents who all seemed to support the idea.
At the upcoming City Council meeting, Tuesday, June 28, 2022, Blue Line Solutions out of Tennesse will make their proposal to secure the contract with the City of New Iberia for the traffic light cameras.
Blue Line Solutions will explain how traffic light cameras will help make New Iberia safer, as well as provide a welcome additional revenue stream for the city.
Judging by the reaction from residents when asked if they would be in favor of traffic light cameras, it seems that New Iberians are supportive of the idea.
