LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Las Cruces is pulling the plug on its red-light traffic enforcement cameras.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that the city isn't renewing its contract with Redflex Traffic Systems and that police will stop issuing citations based on camera images.

City Manager Robert Garza says city officials don't have solid data indicating that the cameras at three busy intersections are producing results.

Garza also put motorists on notice that Las Cruces police will probably have a greater presence at intersections.
