Alexandria Police Begin Photo Safety Program

On Monday, August 1, the Alexandria Police Department will begin the second phase of the Photo Safety Program to help reduce red-light violations and crashes throughout the City.  Photo enforcement cameras will capture still images and video of red-light violators.  Fines will be issued for all citations.  This comes following a 31-day warning period from July 1 to July 31.  During this warning period, a warning notice was issued to the vehicle’s registered owner for any violations but no fine was assessed. 
The photo-enforcement cameras are located at three intersections:
• South Patrick Street and Franklin Street
• South Patrick Street and Gibbon Street
• Duke Street and South Walker Street

Cameras will operate 24 hours a day and capture images of every vehicle running the red-lights at those intersections.  Warning signs alerting drivers to the red-light cameras have been installed prior to the warning period.

The Alexandria Police Department’s program is administered by Redflex Traffic Systems (http://www.redflex.com).  Each violation will be reviewed and approved by the Alexandria Police Department prior to being issued.

For more information contact the Public Information Office at 703.838.4636.
