Red-light camera installed at El Camino-Eastern intersection

By Deia de Brito

The intersection of El Camino and Eastern avenues is the site of the region's latest red light photo-enforcement camera system. Its testing period began at 12:01 a.m. today.

Installed by the Sacramento Metropolitan Red Light Photo Enforcement Detail, the camera will catch red-light violators and mail them a warning notice, according to a news release from the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.

The non-punitive warnings will become $436 citations starting Aug. 7. A website will be available for violators to review their transgressions in photo or video form.

The sheriff's department reports that red-light related crashes have dropped by 76 percent in photo-enforced intersections since the start of the program.
