Signs missing 

Each one of the 31 red-light cameras in the City of Rochester is supposed to have an accompanying sign posted nearby, warning motorists of the presence of the cameras. But at a meeting last week, City Council members Adam McFadden and Elaine Spaull said they've noticed red-light intersections without signs. "We were told they all would have signs," McFadden said. | City spokesperson Gary Walker says all the red-light intersections did have signs at one time, but some may have gone missing or become obscured by foliage. He says that a city engineering team is checking every location and that missing signs would be quickly replaced. | At the same meeting, Council members questioned Mayor Tom Richards about the recent scandal that caused the City of Chicago to drop Redflex as its red-light camera vendor; Rochester uses Redflex, too. | According to the Chicago Tribune, Redflex "gave thousands of dollars in free trips to the former city official" who oversaw the program. | Richards said it appears that only a few people were involved in the scandal, and that it shouldn't affect the company as a whole. | "We'll stay close to it," Richards said.
