HOW DOES THE RED LIGHT SYSTEM WORK?
The red light photo enforcement system measures your speed as you approach the signal. If your speed indicates that you are unlikely to stop before the signal changes to red, it captures a digital photograph of your vehicle behind the stop line. If you then travel past the stop line while the signal is red, it captures a second photograph of your vehicle in the intersection and extracts the image of your license plate. The system also captures a motion video of the event which you can review online. A Midway police officer reviews every single violation.
