LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Red-light enforcement cameras may be gone from Las Cruces, but the fines are not forgotten.
    
The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that the city still intends to pursue nearly $3 million in unpaid fines for red-light runners.
    
The city opted in February not to renew its contract with Redflex Traffic Systems and crews removed the cameras from intersections this week.
    
The cameras had been present for six years.
    
Officials say they don't have solid data indicating that the cameras at three busy intersections are producing results.
    
City Manager Robert Garza says motorists with outstanding citations are expected to pay them but they can also appeal.
    
Garza says Redflex will likely seek payment too since that is how the company gets paid for its services.
