CORAL SPRINGS (CBS4) – Lights, Camera…Fine, well, at least not for another month.

Cameras at nearly half a dozen Coral Springs intersections began snapping pictures Monday of drivers who ran red lights.  The active intersections include:

  • Southbound at University Drive and Riverside Drive
  • Northbound and Southbound at University Drive and Ramblewood Drive
  • Northbound and Southbound at University Drive and Shadow Wood Blvd.
  • Northbound at University Drive and Royal Palm Blvd.
  • Eastbound at Sample Road and Riverside Drive

Signs are posted at intersections with the cameras to inform drivers.

Vehicles that pass the stop line after the light turns red will be captured in two photos and a video clip. A police officer trained in red-light camera enforcement will then look over the images and decide whether or not a violation has occurred. Those caught on camera running red lights will receive warnings for the next 30 days. On September 14th, the city will begin issuing fines of $158 to the vehicle’s registered owner.

Violators have 30 days to pay the fine or challenge it in court. If not paid within 30 days, it is then considered a standard traffic infraction and the fine is beefed up to $263.

The city intends to install red-light cameras at seven intersections by the year’s end.
