Another Round Of Red-Light Cameras Coming To Raleigh

Posted May 4, 2004

— Raleigh's red light camera program is about to get another green light. Seven intersections already have red light cameras, and now seven more will follow.

The red light cameras will be at the following intersections:

  • New Hope Church at Brentwood Road
  • New Bern Avenue at Tarboro
  • Peace and West Streets
  • New Hope Road at Capital Boulevard
  • Six Forks and Dartmouth Roads
  • Capital Boulevard at Huntleigh Drive
  • Southbound Capital at Highwoods
  • Since the cameras went up, Raleigh has issued 7,419 red light citations. Sixty-two drivers appealed and 17 citations were dismissed.

    Engineers expect the new cameras to be in by late September. The fine is $50 and all profits from Raleigh's cameras go to Wake County Schools.

    Cary and Fayetteville also have red light cameras. Fayetteville has had them for years while Cary has had them for a few months.

    Durham wants to put them up, but the city is still in the planning stages. Chapel Hill had cameras, but voters did not want them, so the Town Council had them removed earlier this year.
