Red Light Camera program to launch in Colorado Springs

Posted: Updated:

The City of Colorado Springs announced an upcoming Red Light Camera program to launch this year. 

The city says Colorado Springs Police will install four red light cameras this summer or fall. Once the program results are assessed, there are plans to install six additional cameras in the next 12 to 18 months.

The location of the cameras will be decided in a consultation with vendors including collision data, speed issues, intersection volume and construction, pedestrian safety, and more, the city says.

According to a release, the Mayor of Colorado Springs provided the money to CSPD in the 2018 budget to cover initial costs of the program. Fines from red light violations will cover additional costs on a monthly basis.

The city says there is a set limit on the amount of money paid to the vendor each month, and that fee is based on the cost/value of the equipment and not the number of violations issues. The number of violations issued will not be related to the amount paid to the vendor. 

Colorado Springs City Marshals will be responsible for running the initial program, according to a release. City court will be responsible for collecting all fines associated with red light violations.
