Red Light Cameras Now in Operation
Several years ago the town council made a decision to install red light cameras at some intersections on Rt. 1. Those lights have finally been installed at the intersections of West Beach and East Beach Roads and are operational.
Live enforcement of these lights began on November 9.
If the system predicts that a violation is about to occur, it snaps a high resolution digital photograph of the vehicle before the stop bar. If the vehicle actually runs the red light, the system captures a second image of the vehicle in the intersection. A digital video captures the entire event.
No citation is issued until the event has been reviewed by two independent individuals including one police officer.
Please be reminded that a right turn on red before a complete stop is illegal and would result in a citation.
More information on the red light cameras is available at the Town’s website.
