CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — The Triangle is getting two more red-light cameras.
Beginning Sept. 1, there will be two cameras in service in Chapel Hill -- one at the intersection of Airport Road and Estes Drive and another where U.S. 15-501, Sage Road and Scarlett Drive come together.
Another eight cameras will be installed over the coming months.
European cities started using cameras to catch red-light runners. Now the cameras are in about 50 U.S communities, including several cities and towns in North Carolina.
