The intersections that have been in service since late 2008 have produced nearly $250,000 in fines. Approximately half of that money has to be sent to the company that installed and operates the lights, but the rest heads to the City. 

Since the cameras started issuing tickets in November 2008, 2,468 of the $124 tickets have been issued. The intersections currently monitored by red light cameras are:

  • Browne St. southbound at Sprague Ave.
  • Hamilton St. northbound at Mission Ave.
  • Division St. north and southbound at Francis Ave.

The five new cameras will be added at the following locations:

  • Freya and 3rd
  • Thor and 2nd
  • Division and Sprague
  • Ash and Wellesley
  • An additional camera at the Division and Francis intersection

Police say the cameras have helped catch violators that would have otherwise gone unnoticed.

The company that installs the cameras has already done site survey's on the locations and construction could begin by the end of the summer. The number of violators paying their tickets is at 80 percent right now, higher than the original proposed average.
