First Set Of Red Light Camera Locations Selected

June 7, 2006 -- The first group of ten red light cameras used to monitor red light running will be installed at the following intersections: Bay Area Blvd. @ El Camino
Real, Bellaire @ Fondren, Bellaire @ Wilcrest, Bingle @ Pinemont, Elgin @ Milam, Hilcroft @ Harwin, Hillcroft @ Westpark, John F. Kennedy @ Greens Rd. and Richmond @ Dunvale, Travis @ Webster. Installation is scheduled to begin within the next 2 - 3 weeks. These sites were selected based on the number of crashes that occurred at the intersection and number of crashes that occurred at the intersections where red light running was a contributing factor.

It is anticipated that American Traffic Solutions (ATS) will install and have these first ten cameras operational by mid July 2006. The others will be placed in groups of 10 approximately every 30-45 days. ATS is also creating a media public awareness campaign designed to inform motorists and the general public about the Red Light Camera system that will last 30 days. No citations will be issued during this period.

The red light camera sites have been, and will continue to be, determined from statistical analysis of crash data by a committee consisting of representatives from the Houston Galveston Area Council, Rice University, as well as the HPD Traffic Division.
