PhotoSafety Richmond

Red Light Cameras are coming to Richmond

Red light running violations are frequently observed by citizens at nearly every intersection in the city. As a citizen in our community, we are certain you would agree that the number of red light running occurrences that officers are unable to enforce is significantly high. The photo enforcement camera systems are an important force multiplier for the police department and they reduce the risks involved with red light running enforcement.

The key to PhotoSafety Richmond's success is public knowledge of the systems and the assurance that if you run a red light, your vehicle will be photographed and you will receive a civil penalty for the violation. Details concerning Richmond's automated red-light running enforcement program can be found under the related documents section.

The following information is provided for assistance:
