Cameras at several intersections in New Port Richey to catch red light runners

New Port Richey

Run a red light, cameras will be watching you

Drivers take note: Red light cameras are up and running along U.S. 19 at Main Street (southbound), Marine Parkway (southbound), Cross Bayou (northbound) and Gulf Drive (northbound and southbound). People have been receiving mailed "courtesy warnings" for running those lights, but starting June 15, violators will receive citations. The fine starts at $158, but shoots up to $264 if the citation isn't paid within 30 days. A similar red light camera system is in place in Port Richey at U.S. 19 and Ridge Road, as well as at U.S. 19 and Grand Boulevard.
