Up to 9 percent of all traffic collisions in the city involve a red-light violation, and police write about 900 red-light tickets a year – about 4 percent of overall moving citations, said Povilaitis, who heads the police traffic bureau. Also, crashes involving a red-light runner are more dangerous for motorists, he said. “You’re much more likely to have a much more severe collision because of physics and the speed involved,” he said. “The potential for injury is a lot higher.” The one-year contract with Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Redflex Traffic System would cost $5,000 to $6,200 a month per intersection, excluding police staff time. But Povilaitis said the program was expected to pay for itself through fines, with the camera vendor offering a “revenue guarantee.” The city will consider renewing the program after 12 months. GLENDALE – Drivers beware: Red-light cameras are coming to an intersection near you. The City Council approved a year-long pilot program Tuesday night to install photo-enforcement cameras in at least two intersections. Though officials have not decided on their locations, the cameras will likely be up and running within five months, Glendale police Lt. Carl Povilaitis said Wednesday. “The goal behind the program is to reduce collision and to reduce accidents from the running of red lights,” he said. “If it works, we can put it all over the city,” Mayor Dave Weaver said as he approved the contract. Both police and public works staff will determine the exact locations. firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
