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.
