Red light cameras: Love 'em or hate 'em, they're on the increase in Elk Grove.
A new one will be activated at the corner of Elk Grove Florin Road and Bond Road Wednesday, according to the Elk Grove Police Department.
Drivers who run the light between now and 12:00 a.m. April 27 will receive warning notices. After that, it's a $470 fine.
Police said they chose the intersection for its high numbers of accidents and drivers disobeying the traffic light.
“Photo enforcement has a greater deterrent effect if drivers are aware it’s out there,” Lieutenant Paul Solomon said in a press release. “The Elk Grove Police Department wants to make sure that drivers know we are using photo enforcement and that they have time to learn about this new safety program.”
The department already operates four other red-light cameras at intersections around Elk Grove, including Elk Grove Blvd and Bruceville Rd, Laguna Blvd and Franklin Blvd, Laguna Blvd and Bruceville Rd, and Laguna Blvd and Laguna Springs Drive.
