Red light cameras help communities enforce traffic laws by automatically photographing vehicles whose drivers run red lights. A red light camera system is connected to the traffic signal and to sensors that monitor traffic flow at the crosswalk and/or stop line. The system continuously monitors the traffic signal, and the camera is triggered by any vehicle entering the intersection after the signal has turned red.
A violation occurs when a motorist enters an intersection some time after the signal light has turned red. Motorists inadvertently in an intersection when the signal changes to red (for example, waiting to turn left) are not red light runners. It is standard practice for police officers to review video to verify vehicle information and ensure the vehicle is in violation. Tickets are mailed to vehicle owners only in cases where it is clear the vehicle ran a red light.
