Baltimore officials plan to award contracts worth nearly $10 million on Wednesday to two companies that will relaunch the city’s once-troubled speed and red light camera system as early as June.
American Traffic Solutions will be paid $5.4 million to run the city’s speed camera system and Conduent Inc. will be paid $4.2 million to run the red light camera system, according to a proposal under consideration by the city’s spending panel. A third firm, MRA Digital LLC, will be paid $80,000 to calibrate the cameras annually….
He also acknowledged that the system will create a new revenue stream for the city.
