The red-light camera program in Escondido is losing money because of a sharp and steady drop in citations, and city officials are looking to either get rid of them or get a cheaper contract with program's vendors, The North County Times reports.

City officials said the number of citations has fallen from 6,562 in 2007 to 3,344 in 2010, a trend that has continued into early 2011.

The program has gone from turning a $121,000 profit in fiscal year 2007-08 to a projected deficit of roughly $150,000 in fiscal year 2010-11, which ends June 30.
