About the Program
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, nearly two million crashes annually occur in intersections. In 2007, red light running resulted in almost 900 fatalities and 153,000 injuries.
Red-light running is a problem. It is believed that an automated red-light camera program will reduce the number of red-light collisions and injuries associated with these crashes. The purpose of this program is to increase traffic safety in the City of Cleveland. The goal of the program is to reduce red-light running violations, crashes, and injuries without impacting city funds.
Red Light Running Violation
A red light running violation occurs when a motorist enters an intersection after the traffic signal has turned red. Motorists already in the intersection when the signal changes to red, waiting to turn for example, are not considered red light violators.
Red Light Camera Locations
The intersections with camera installations are listed below. Each intersection is marked clearly with signs:
N/B SL 573 (Washington) at SH 105 (W. Southline)
N/B SL 573 (Washington) at San Jacinto
W/B SH 105 (Houston) at Fenner
Red Light Camera Contractor
