Residents in Cleveland are now fighting against red light cameras in their city.

Monday morning at city hall, demonstrators filed a petition requesting a proposition to ban red light cameras be put on the ballot.

Nearly 1,000 people signed the petition.

Aubrey Vaughn told Local 2 in the 25 days the cameras have been in place, there have been more crashes than in the 18 months before they were installed at intersections.

Monday night, Cleveland city council held a special meeting but didn't make any decisions about the red light camera issue.

The city attorney is reviewing the petition and the camera contract with American Traffic Solutions.

ATS says it will cost the city $1 million to end their agreement.
