FYI List of Bay Area Cities Using Red Light Cameras

Postby TrafficGuy01 » Sat Jul 19, 2014 5:23 pm

Article Posted 6/9/14

Red-light cameras have been adopted by cities across California to monitor traffic at busy intersections and raise revenue for municipal coffers. The state has the highest red-light violation fine in the country -- a whopping $490.

Several cities in Alameda, San Francisco and San Mateo counties have red-light cameras at busy intersections. However, a mini rebellion has kicked up in the last year or so and some cities have begun dumping the program. Among them are Redwood City, Hayward and Belmont, which scrapped their red-light cameras last year, and San Rafael and Oakland also recently terminated contracts with red-light camera company Redflex. While Redflex is the leading company hired by California cities to catch red-light runners, the company Xerox has cameras at about 26 intersections in San Francisco, and American Traffic Solutions has cameras in Millbrae and South San Francisco. Contra Costa and Santa Clara counties do not use red light cameras.

Bay Area cities that use red light cameras:

Berkeley
Daly City
Fairfield
Fremont
Menlo Park
Millbrae
Napa
Newark
Pleasanton
San Francisco
San Leandro
San Mateo
South San Francisco

I will work this into the new California page when I complete the new state template for the USA.

Just a pointer that someone will need to stay on top of the list as more and more California cities do away with Red Light Cams.

I wonder if we could create some sort of mechanism/reminder/system for people to periodically check on lists like this, which have a temporal nature, rather than leaving it to chance/memory?

The Wiki can use the {{as of}} template to automatically track dated pages like the one we would create here. The California page would then also note the page may be updated periodically.

Do the link provide some kind of RSS feed for changes? I have not looked.

That one's just a news article. Not sure it would be beneficial to link it.

My experience with Red Light Camera research has usually meant going to a given site for each particular city or their law enforcement and "hand-gathering" the information. There is one independent site which keeps track of all the cities in California and their RLC programs, but I'm a little hesitant to use it as a solid resource. It's good for a starting point, though: http://highwayrobbery.net/redlightcamscameras.htm

Interesting. I guess we will simply be monitoring them as they come up.

Emeryville removed cameras in 2013 -- TrafficGuy01, I sent you a PM about the two on Powell St. before seeing this post.

Also there was the thread I started from last year. ;)

Today I found at least 40 individual incorrect camera placements some are multiple reporters all Rank, 1 tried to PM a few, to recommend reading up on camera placement but I got the following message "The requested users to be added do not exist." It appears they think traffic surveillance cameras are speed or red light cameras Oh well.
