The New York State Banking Department on Friday said it issued 2,292 violations against the operators of the state's 3,400 ATM locations in 1998.

Nearly 80% of the violations were for inadequate lighting. The rest covered inadequate use of security cameras and other safety violations. The banking department collected $189,000 in fines.

The ATM Safety Act, which took effect in 1997, established statewide security measures for ATM machines. The state spent $120,000 to implement the program, or $24.72 per inspection. The banking department disclosed the data in a report sent to the state legislature.
