Red Light Camera System Goes Live Today at El Camino and Eastern

The Sacramento Metropolitan Red Light Photo Enforcement Detail has placed a new digital red light photo enforcement camera system at the intersection of El Camino Avenue and Eastern Avenue.

The new camera system is being tested and is scheduled to go “live” on Thursday, July 8, 2010, at 12:01 a.m. For a period of thirty days, red light violators will be mailed a warning notice. On August 7, 2010, red light violators will begin to receive actual citations by mail from this intersection. When a citation is issued and received by the violator through the mail, they will be referred to a website where they can review the still and/or video images of their violation. The violator will be able to clearly see where their vehicle is in relationship to the intersection’s limit line, and the green, yellow and red lights. The fine is currently $436 for red light running violations.

Increased traffic safety is the number one priority of the county’s Red Light Photo Enforcement Program. There has been as much as a 76% reduction in red-light related crashes at the photo enforced intersections in the city and county since the implementation of the program. Furthermore, there has been a 28% reduction in red-light running related crashes at all signal-controlled intersections in the city and county of Sacramento.
