QUESTION: There appear to be cameras on the traffic lights at the intersection of U.S. 56 Highway, also known as Main Street and 175th Street, and Cedar Niles Road. Why are they there?

ANSWER: The white cameras are mounted on top of the traffic signals at the intersection. They are not used for law enforcement, Kimberly Qualls, spokesperson for the Kansas Department of Transportation, explained. The cameras help determine when to change the traffic signals from green to red and vice versa.
“The only thing (the cameras) do is monitor traffic for the changing of signals,” Qualls said.
