New Red Light Camera at Pico and Bundy

Last week I got together with LAPD officers and DOT staff to unveil a new red light camera system at the corner of Pico Blvd and Bundy Dr. This intersection had the highest number of accidents of any intersection in the 11th District, so it is the first to have the camera system installed. This intersection also recently had a left turn signal installed as part of my Westside Anti-Gridlock Plan. These are crucial investments in public safety that will make our streets safer for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians, and keep people moving on the Westside.

Across the City, traffic collisions have decreased by 15% at intersections equipped with red light cameras. The systems feature multiple cameras that capture a violation from every angle. When the system captures a violation, it is reviewed by LAPD officers before a citation is mailed to the driver. With a fine of $381 for running a red light, we had all better think twice before we try to rush through a yellow light.

The camera system is fully operational, but citations will not be issued for the first 30 days in order for drivers to become familiar with the system. For more info, see the Red Light Camera FAQ on the Hot Topics section of my website.
