Expensive tickets for violators
The 30 day grace period has ended, and those cars and drivers who are caught by the new redlight camera recently installed at the intersection of Elk Grove-Florin and Bond roads will now face stiff penalties for intersection traffic violations. Tickets will be issued by mailed and will cost violators $470.

“Photo enforcement has a greater deterrent effect if drivers are aware it’s out there,” Lieutenant Paul Solomon, Program Manager said.

With this installation, there will be five traffic cameras in operation in the city. The other cameras are located at Elk Grove Blvd. and Bruceville, Laguna Blvd. and Franklin Blvd, Laguna Blvd. and Bruceville and Laguna Blvd. and Laguna Springs Drive.

Beware, the yellow lights are not on long enough to make it through the intersection. I had just passed the crosswalk making a left at EG-Florin/Bond making a left turn when the yellow came on, and could only get halfway thru the intersection when it turned red.

Wouldn't surprise me if they tinkered with the timing too--$470 a pop!
