City officials hope traffic will ease up on some of Quincy's busiest intersections.
Tonight aldermen approved replacing traffic cameras on 36th and Broadway and 24th and Koch's lane.
The cameras carry a cost of just under eight thousand dollars - but around half of that will be reimbursed by the state.
City engineer Jeff Steinkamp says it's just to keep traffic moving, and not to keep drivers waiting.
"And then it sends a signal to the traffic controller to tell them what signals they should do - so if they have vehicles in the left hand turn lane - then they will activate the left hand turn lane signal - and it just makes traffic more efficient and better for everyone," said Steinkamp.
The cameras do not detect bad driving habits - like running red lights.
