500+ citations issued in first month of Opelika traffic cameras - WRBL

Opelika issues more than 500 citations from new traffic cameras

Posted: Updated:

Red light cameras in Opelika generated more than 500 citations in the first full month.

Mayor Gary Fuller says 794 warnings were issued in April when the cameras started being used and motorists were getting used to them. The grace period ended when May started, and 533 citations were issued that month. He said June figures aren't complete, but he expects about 300 for the month.

The cameras record a vehicle and its tag as it goes through a red light. The cameras are in use at four intersections that Opelika officials say have a high number of traffic accidents.

The red light cameras are maintained by American Traffic Solutions of Scottsdale, Ariz. The mayor says there is no investment by the city.
