Motorists given 30 day grace period

The City of Elk Grove has added another intersection to the red light camera enforcement program. Effective Monday, March 23, 2009 at 12:01 a.m., cameras will begin monitoring the intersection of Laguna Blvd. and Laguna Springs Drive.

During the first 30-days of operation, there will be a grace period in which the Elk Grove Police Department will issue Warning Notices to violators. Notices will explain that beginning April 24, 2009, notices to appear will be sent to violators who will then be responsible for paying the $426.00 fine listed on the citation.

“Photo enforcement has a greater deterrent effect if drivers are aware it’s out there,” said Lieutenant Craig Potter, Program Manager. “The Elk Grove Police Department wants to make sure that drivers know we are using photo enforcement and that they have time to learn about this new safety program.”

The Elk Grove Police Department in cooperation with the Public Works Department selected Laguna Blvd. and Laguna Springs Dr. based on several factors: violations, collision statistics and traffic flow.

Elk Grove’s red light camera enforcement program is administered by Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., an Arizona-based provider of traffic safety photo enforcement. Redflex is contracted to provide similar successful programs in Arizona, California, Colorado, North Carolina, Ohio and Oregon.

'enforcement' is with a 'c' not an 's' ;-)

I think they should abandoned this red lights camera they have. This is just a waste of our tax payers money. Especially it was contracted on an out of state company. They need to put more officers on the street instead of the machine doing their jobs for them.
