Automated Red-Light Camera Program is Here

Salinas Police Department would like to announce that the Automated Red-Light Camera Enforcement Program is ready and will begin issuing warning notices November 1, 2019. This program is designed to improve public safety through increased enforcement of red-light violations and increased public awareness of the dangers of running red lights.

November 1, 2019, the 30-day warning period begins. Warning notices will be issued for approximately thirty days. The projected date for the Automated Red-Light Camera Program to begin issuing citations is early December. For more information refer to the attached brochure.

The program is funded by money paid by red light violators and at no cost to the city. It is projected that the program will earn just enough to pay for the operation of the equipment, and the processing of the citations. It is anticipated that the City will generate little or no income from the program.
