No more warnings on red light cameras
The Spokane Police Department announced today that the warning period for three new red light cameras is expiring today at midnight. Anyone who is caught on camera running a red light after that will receive a ticket in the mail.
The affected intersections are southbound Browne St. at Third Ave., southbound Maple St. at Second Ave. and westbound Second Ave. at Walnut Street. The three cameras went live on July 1 and officers have sent out 500 warning notices since they were installed, said police spokeswoman Teresa Fuller.
The city has issued more than 25,000 citations for running a red light since the first cameras were installed, Fuller said. The fine that goes with the citation is $124.
