Wilmington –  Yesterday, the city of Wilmington announced its suspension of camera use to ticket drivers for right-turns-on-red-lights and would be refunding fines collected since July 1, 2016. Cathy Rossi, Vice President of Public & Government Affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic, issued the following statement in response:

“The announcement today by Wilmington Mayor Michael Purzycki demonstrates remarkable leadership, goodwill to motorists and a clear commitment to responsible government. AAA supports the use of red light camera enforcement at intersections where public safety is a proven risk and we are committed to working with the Purzycki administration to improve traffic safety in the city.”

Mayor Michael Purzycki is to be commended and the decision demonstrates leadership and a focus on traffic safety not revenue, added AAA.
