PETERSBURG, Va. (WTVR) -- A state delegate wants to change red-light cameras in Petersburg.

Delegate Joe Morrissey said he is worried that the cameras, installed two months ago, may not be give drivers enough time to get through a changing light. That means drivers may be ticketed for driving through a yellow light.

Morrissey is also concerned that the city is using the cameras not for safety but to raise revenue.

Petersburg's red light cameras have caught more than 1,400 violators since November.
