TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA)The Tampa city council voted 4 to 3 not to renew the red light camera contract for city.

The vote came down during city council's regular Thursday meeting at 9 a.m. The agreement was between the City of Tampa and American Traffic Solutions, Inc. for the provision of a Red Light Traffic Infraction Detection Program. The recommendation before the council was to approve the renewal, according to city council agenda documents, but that didn't happen.

The council approved having cameras around the city in April 2011 - valid for a 3 years. The city could now renew the agreement for an additional two-year period.

According to city documents, there are currently 51 active red light cameras in 21 intersections.
