There are currently twelve cameras installed at eleven intersections:
Yellow light timing is based on the physical characteristics of the intersection and driver behavior. A driver needs sufficient time to see a yellow light and safely determine whether to stop or proceed through the intersection. Increasing yellow light times beyond what is reasonable can actually increase the number of red light runners, because of a longer delay that drivers experience at intersections.
If you receive a notice of violation, you may request a hearing. If you received the notice of violation erroneously or if you have a legal justification for going through the red light (for example, if an emergency vehicle forces you through the light), then you are not liable for the civil penalty.
Violators will be assessed a $75 fine for every citation received. If the citation is not paid by the due date a $25 penalty fee will be assessed. These are civil fines, not criminal. Because the violation is a civil matter, it does not count as a moving violation and will not be reported to anyone's driving record.
