A red-light running violation occurs when a motorist enters an intersection after the traffic signal has turned red. Motorists already in the intersection when the signal changes to red, waiting to turn, for example, are not considered red-light violators.

The intersections with camera installations are listed below. Each intersection is marked clearly with signs.
The intersection safety camera system is designed to take three photographs of a vehicle that may be committing a violation. The first rear image captures the vehicle prior to entering the intersection with the traffic signal red, the second image shows the vehicle continuing through the intersection during the red signal phase, and the third image captures the front of the vehicle.
On occasion, a vehicle approaching an intersection with a red light may come to a stop before entering the intersection yet trigger the safety camera system, causing the flash to discharge. In addition, a vehicle approaching the intersection and making a right turn may not come to a complete stop but only slow before continuing to turn, triggering the road safety camera system and causing the flash to discharge.
The Police Department reviews each violation event captured by the intersection safety camera system and makes the final decision to issue a citation. All flash incidents do not equate to a citation.
