PSA: New red light cameras Ogden/Eola 11/21

From the city:


RED LIGHT CAMERAS SLATED FOR OGDEN AND EOLA
The intersection with the highest number of crashes last year in Aurora will have red light enforcement cameras that are slated to be operational the week of Nov. 21. The cameras, which will record both eastbound and westbound traffic on Ogden Avenue (Route 34) at Eola Road, accompany systems at four other city intersections.

Installation of the cameras began Thursday, Nov. 4. After the systems go live, motorists who disregard the red lights at Ogden and Eola will be fined $100. The intersection, located on the city’s Far East side in the DuPage County section of Aurora, was the site of 66 crashes in 2009. Through Oct. 31, 49 crashes have occurred at the intersection, making it the third highest spot citywide in 2010.

The cameras catch motorists entering intersections after the light turns red. They record several still photographs and a 12 second video clip of the red light violation. After being reviewed by three different trained technicians at Red Flex, the company supplying the technology, the video is sent to the Aurora Police Department where a sworn officer reviews it to determine if he or she would have written the violation had they saw it in person. If approved by the officer, a notice outlining the $100 fine is sent to the vehicle’s owner within 20 days. The vehicle owner then has 21 days to either pay the fine or contest it through an administrative hearing judge.

Police reinforce vehicles entering intersections on a yellow light, or those caught in an intersection when a yellow light turns red are not considered in violation. Currently, the red light enforcement system is only used to issue tickets for vehicles that do not completely stop at an intersection before turning right on red when a safety violation is observed by the officer reviewing the video.

The other locations where the cameras are being utilized are New York Street and Farnsworth Avenue; New York and Commons Drive; Farnsworth and Molitor Road; and New York and Eola.

Has it been scientifically proven that intersection cameras prevent accidents?

There's one at every god damn major intersection in the city.

NO, but it has been proven that they significantly increase the revenue of municipalities.

I hate them.

Peg Sparkz PS1 $29.99 out of stock

Peg Sparkz is a small bolt-on product to replace your factory installed road feelers. Road feelers are the small piece of aluminum attached to your foot pegs that touch the road when you are leaning in corners too far. Instead of you feelers hitting the road use Peg Sparkz and light them up!

Hit the corners fast and low and watch them glow, fill the corners with sparkz!"


OMFG thats hilarious

What Chief said. More $$ in the name of safety.

And at least it's just e/w traffic. I turn right on Ogden from Eola all the time. Fack, red light cameras were never supposed to screw that movement up anyway.

Aww motherfucker I live right there. Whenever I leave the house I go through that intersection.

On another note I bet none ya knew this. There is a guy that stands by the intersection acting like the light is going to change. He's really a cop and hes calling out people texting, not stopping on red and seatbelt violations one after another. They usually get 10 cars in under 2 minutes and they round up after the stops and repeat.
