Cameras at Port Richey intersections will catch red light runners

PORT RICHEY

Cameras will catch red light runners

Be careful if you run red lights. The city is moving forward with plans to install additional red light cameras at city intersections. Having obtained City Council's blessing Tuesday evening, Jacksonville-based Traffipax will place cameras facing the eastbound lanes of Ridge Road at U.S. 19, and the northbound lanes of U.S. 19 at Ridge Road. Cameras also will be installed at Grand Boulevard and U.S. 19 in all four directions. The cameras can take pictures of drivers who run the red light, and a ticket is then sent in the mail. A portion of the traffic ticket fines will reimburse Traffipax for the cost of installing and running the cameras. The city's first red light camera was installed last year at Ridge Road and U.S. 19, pointing toward the southbound lanes of the highway. Eventually, cameras will be placed at the city's third intersection, Leo Kidd Avenue and Ridge Road.
