Cameras Catch Up with Los Angeles Drivers

December 6, 2001

Cameras installed this year to catch red light runners at just eight intersections in the Los Angeles have produced 12,000 citations, police officials said.

According to the Los Angeles Times, in comparison, without such cameras available, there were 25,000 red light violation tickets issued last year at the other 4,300 intersections in the city.

Eight more red light cameras are to be installed within the next four months.

Police also announced that the city and the company installing the camera system, Affiliated Computer Services, have come to agreement on the remaining locations for the still cameras.

The firm is seeking a change in the way it is paid.

It wants a flat fee for citations issued, rather than a fee for each ticket resulting in conviction.
