Since they were installed in 2005, the red-light cameras along Roosevelt Boulevard at Red Lion Road and Grant Avenue have resulted in a decrease in the number of traffic violations at those intersections, according to a new campaign video released by the Philadelphia Parking Authority.
The video explains the state’s red-light camera program, walks viewers through the violation process and focuses on a handful of intersections the PPA says have been made safer thanks to the cameras.
Take, for example, the Grant/Boulevard intersection. There were 4,362 red-light violations there in 2005. In 2010, there were 283.
The city’s red-light camera continues to grow, and three new cameras were activated late last year at Bustleton Avenue and Byberry Road, Academy Road and Grant Avenue, and Woodhaven and Knights roads.
