As the Independent reported on Nov. 22, 2017, the city is reviving its red-light camera program with installation of four red light cameras this summer and fall. Another six cameras will be added within 12 to 18 months thereafter, the Colorado Springs Police Department said in a statement.
First implemented in 2010, the program was junked by then-Mayor Steve Bach the next year. Now, it's back to help nab red-light runners amid an officer shortage. Locations of the cameras will be picked in consultation with a vendor based on collision data, traffic volume, speeding and other issues. Program costs are included in the 2018 budget, and ongoing expenses will be covered by fines resulting from red-light violations. City marshals will run the program. Violators will be fined $75, not including court costs.
