AZCentral:  Peoria photo-enforcement cameras stopped operating Monday morning following a decision last month to end the program.

The city decided not to renew its contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, the company that operates the cameras, after learning that crashes at monitored intersections actually increased during the three-year pilot program.

Cameras were placed at four intersections throughout the city: Thunderbird Road and 75th Avenue, Thunderbird Road and 83rd Avenue, Union Hills Drive and 83rd Avenue, and Bell Road and 91st Avenue.
