In an effort to make our roads safer, the City of Greenville will implement a red-light safety camera program on October 15, 2017. The goal of this program is to increase traffic safety in the city by reducing red-light running violations, collisions and injuries without impacting City funds.
Red-light running is a serious safety issue with red-light running crashes resulting in hundreds of people killed each year in the United States. According to the most recent data from the United State Department of Transportation, there were 710 fatalities resulting from red-light running in 2014 and thousands of other collisions as a result of motorists failing to stop at red lights.
Statistics show that red-light safety camera programs have reduced the number of collisions and injuries associated with red-light running crashes. Locations of the red-light cameras in Greenville were determined after an analysis of the most common intersections for red-light running violations and collisions. By placing the cameras at these intersections, the City hopes to save lives and reduce the risk of injury for all motorists, pedestrians and cyclists.
