Manor board holds public hearing on placing red-light cameras at Pelhamdale-BPR intersection


The Pelham Manor village board held a public hearing Dec. 13 on a local law that would permit placement of red-light cameras at the Pelhamdale Avenue-Boston Post Road intersection.

Currently, local law does not allow for putting the cameras on the Boston Post Road, as it’s a state-run federal highway (U.S. 1).

Resident Alison Frost said she was in support of the law but wanted to know if motorists who were making a left turn at the intersection would be charged with a red-light violation. She also asked about how the fines were reviewed and assigned.

Village Manager John Pierpont said the company managing the cameras would review the pictures before sending them to the police, who would then make the final decisions.

In other news, the board said evidence from the burglary at Four Corners on Dec. 2, when three stores had their windows broken and one had money taken, had been sent to a lab for analysis.

All participants at the meeting followed the new masking rules instituted by Governor Kathy Hochul, and a police officer was posted at the door checking vaccination statuses.
