COLORADO SPRINGS — The City of Colorado Springs will be adding two additional red light cameras that will go live on Friday, as part of the “Red Light Safety Camera Program.”

The cameras are located at Platte Avenue and Union Boulevard as well as Woodmen Road and Duryea Drive.

For the first 30-days, violators will only receive a warning. Once that 30-day period expires, a $75 fine is implemented.

These are the seventh and eighth safety cameras to be implemented in the city, with additional intersections expected to be added later this year.

Cameras operate 24-hours-a-day and capture images of vehicles when they run a red light at an intersection.

Violations are issued after police personnel confirms a violation has occurred.

Signs posted along the street will alert drivers that red-light safety cameras are in use at the intersection ahead.
