The City of Windsor Heights plans to unveil two new mobile speed cameras Tuesday.  But some business owners fear the move will drive away customers. 

Just driving down University Avenue in Windsor Heights, it isn't hard to find vacant storefronts. Business owners are worried the problem will get worse when the city implements these mobile traffic cameras.

"Yes I am." says Gina Moore, who manages the Great Clips on University Ave., "Because there's a lot of people that already avoid Windsor Heights because of the police traffic.  So if they're going to set up cameras I think it will make it worse."

The cars and equipment are paid for by an out of state camera company that struck a deal with the city.  The minimum fine for speeding will be $65, with $25 from each ticket going to the camera company.
