FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) — The city of Fayetteville’s Red Light Camera Program is garnering very little results in their latest report, seeing an increase in traffic crashes and the seriousness of those wrecks.
City staff gathered the latest numbers for city council to look over at a future work session meeting; Councilwoman Yvonne Kinston requested the latest data.
Since 2015, when the program first started, at least 12 major intersections have had red light cameras installed. Some of those intersections include: Skibo Road at Morganton Road, Ramsey Street at Law Road and Bragg Boulevard at Cain Road. In that time, violators have received a $100 fine.
Despite city leaders’ wishes to see this program drop traffic crash numbers, the report shows an increase in nearly every metric.
The report collects data from the last two years at the 12 to 13 intersection spots. City officials said they’ve seen 30 more

Let us be straightforward about it…
Until a vaccine is in place, it would be difficult to bat away the virus of COVID -19 completely. Until then, humans and businesses need to go about their businesses with resilience and positivity. Companies, especially, have to think about whether to scale up or scale down their operations.

The technology needed to drive delivery drones is already in existence, but laws have yet to catch up. To help take drone technology to the next step of mainstream adoption, the U.K. is currently in the process of establishing what could be the world’s first commercial drone corridor. This airspace will be available to any fully automated drones flying beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS), so long as it doesn’t require specialist hardware and conforms to basic technical regulations.
The unrestricted airspace — called the “Arrow Drone Zone” — will be located in the town of Reading, to the west of London, in the Thames Valley. The Drone Zone will be approximately 8 kilometers (5 miles) long and 500 meters (1,640 feet) wide. While it is referred to as a, well, zone for drones, it is technically unrestricted open airspace, meaning that drones and general aviation vehicles (read: airplanes and helicopters) will
