CLEVELAND -- State lawmakers may be considering a ban of controversial red-light cameras, but one of Ohio's largest cities is planning to double the number they have in service.

Cleveland City Council approved a contract Monday with a vendor that will add the cameras to 26 more intersections in the city. The city already has 23 cameras operating.

Camera-generated tickets are civil infractions that carry $100 fines.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that council members credited red-light cameras with increasing drivers' awareness of their speed and carelessness at red lights.

More than a dozen Ohio cities use traffic-enforcement cameras. Cleveland collected nearly $6 million from them last year.
