Lonsdale/Mineral Spring is top spot for camera violations School zone cameras coming back online PAWTUCKET – The eastbound (toward downtown) traffic light cam- era at the intersection of Lonsdale Avenue and Mineral Spring Avenue has remained the busiest for tickets generated, with 336 red-light viola- tions captured from Aug. 21 to Sept. 21. The northbound camera at that same intersection was second for total violations over that same period, at 198, proving that this busy intersection with numerous lanes overall and multiple turning lanes is the top spot anywhere in Pawtucket for infractions. Those two cameras at one intersec- tion captured one-third of all red- light violations over the past month.

Seguí Rodríguez had sought the recount due to the closeness of the results and some irregularities in bal- loting. Registrar Ken McGill said Board of Elections person- nel found some Pawtucket ballots in the Portsmouth box, likely a result of the boxes being right next to each other. Seguí Rodríguez picked up four votes in the recount process, while Amponsah picked up three.
