More cameras to capture red-light runners as of today

MONDAY, MARCH 1, 2010, 8:01 A.M.

Four new cameras to catch red-light runners will be activated Monday.

The Photo Red systems will be located at Freya Street facing north at Third Avenue, Second Avenue facing west at Thor Street, Wellesley Avenue facing east at Ash Street, and Division Street facing north at Sprague Ave.

Warning notices will be mailed for traffic violations committed at those intersections during the first 31 days, said Spokane Police Officer Teresa Fuller. Actual citations will be issued starting April 1.

Spokane has had Photo Red cameras at three intersections since October 2008. So far, “they’ve captured over 7,500 red-light runners,” Fuller said.
