Thirty-day warning period for red light cameras begins in Boca

BOCA RATON – The cameras installed by the city to catch motorists running red lights went live on March 15. For the 30-day period beginning on that date, a warning notice will be issued to the registered owner of vehicles running red lights. There will be no fine for this warning notice.

On April 14, 2012, the warning period will end. Each violation thereafter will be reviewed and approved by the Boca Raton Police Services Department prior to an actual citation being issued.

The registered owner may review the images online, and has the option to pay the fine or appeal the citation in court. These citations do not result in any points on the driver’s record.

The safety cameras are located at:

• East & West bound Glades Road at NW 15 Street

• East bound Glades Road at St. Andrews Blvd

• North bound St. Andrews Blvd at Glades Road

• North and South bound Federal Highway at NE 20 Street

• North and South bound Military Trail at Spanish River Blvd

• North and South bound Congress Avenue at Clint Moore Road

• East and West bound Glades Road at NW 2nd Avenue

On October 13, 2010 the Boca Raton City Council approved red light cameras for certain intersections in the city. Cameras began taking photos of red light runners at designated intersections in the city of Boca Raton on March 15.  Cameras will operate 24 hours a day and capture still images and video.
