BAKERSFIELD - The City of Bakersfield will look to keep red light enforcement cameras rolling.
City Council members will vote to extend the city's contract with Red-Flex Traffic Systems Wednesday.
The cameras were first installed at intersections in 2003.
Since then, the Bakersfield Police Department says it has seen more than a 50 percent decrease in broadside crashes and a decrease in rear-end crashes.
Other cities have taken out the cameras because of complaints and costs.
BPD says in a time when the force is short staffed, the cameras help catch violators.
