The Nassau County Traffic Safety Board has reported millions of dollars in lost revenue from its red light traffic camera program.

According to a new report, Nassau County issued almost 100,000 fewer tickets through the camera program in 2014 than they had in the previous year, resulting in an eight percent drop in revenue.

Suffolk County Legislator Robert Trotta is calling for the suspension of the county’s red light camera program.
