Aurora Expanding Use Of Red Light Cameras

Aurora is increasing its use of red light cameras.  By the end of January, Aurora had completed installation of its fifth set of red light cameras.  Cameras have been installed at the intersection of Ogden Avenue and Eola Avenue.  Starting January 15, the owners of cars that were caught on camera committing red light violations started receiving $100 tickets.  Aurora first has the photographs reviewed by a police officer who determines whether the violation will be mailed out.  The ticket is mailed to the owner of the vehicle and they will be given 30 days to pay the fine or contest the ticket by requesting an administrative hearing.  Red light cameras are also installed at the intersections of New York Street and Farnsworth Avenue, New York and Commons Drive, Farnsworth and Molitor Road and New York and Eola Road.  In 2010, Aurora issued 7,193 red light camera tickets.  Accidents are down at these intersections but the city plans to do another intense study this year to study the effect that red light cameras have had at the intersections where they have been installed.
