Red Light Camera Locations
Start smiling at red lights Friday

Cameras will begin snapping photos of red-light violations at 10 city intersections Friday, and violators can expect $75 fines.
"This is a great opportunity for us to use technology so we won't have to use officers as much for traffic enforcement, (and) we can put them in communities to prevent crime," Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt said Monday as he showcased a newly installed camera system at Milam and Elgin.
The city plans to install cameras at 40 more of Houston's most dangerous intersections, 10 at a time. The owners of cars caught running red lights will be mailed civil citations with the $75 penalty.
Police officers still can write red-light tickets, too. Those are misdemeanor criminal violations carrying a maximum fine of $200.
Revenue generated by the camera program — expected to be more than $6 million a year once 50 intersections are monitored — will help to pay police officers who work overtime because of the department's manpower shortage, Hurtt said.
WHERE THEY'RE WATCHING
Starting Friday, cameras will monitor the following intersections to catch red-light violators:
•JFK and Greens
•Hillcroft and Richmond
•Travis and Webster
•Milam and Elgin
•Brazos and Elgin
•Bay Area Blvd. and El Camino Real
•Bellaire and Wilcrest
•Harwin and Hillcroft
•Richmond and Dunvale
•Pease and La Branch
