New York City's cameras that catch motorists who run red lights have generated nearly $53 million in fines last year.      

Department of Transportation records show that more than 1 million summonses were issued in 2010 to unsuspecting drivers, reports the Daily News.      

The $50 tickets and a photo that clearly shows the license plate and the car crossing the intersection are mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle.      

Red-light cameras were first installed in New York City in 2007. The city currently has 150 cameras citywide.      

The DOT also is seeking approval from the state Legislature to install cameras that would catch motorists who exceed the city's 30 mph speed limit.
