Cleveland Taking Down Red Light Cameras

  • Friday, February 5, 2010

Cleveland city officials said red light cameras in the city seem to be effective, but the company furnishing the cameras has asked that the cameras come down.

Accordingly, they will be removed at the end of March.

The firm that supplied the cameras said both it and the city have been losing money on the operation.

A statement from the city manager's office said, "The city of Cleveland is in a contract with Traffipax, Inc. for an automated traffic light enforcement system (red light cameras). The red light camera program has demonstrated safety as well as a decrease in accidents per statistics shown below:

Pre-Camera FY08
Post- Camera FY09
Paul Huff/Keith 59 20
25th/Keith 46 23
20th/Keith 7 4
Raider/Keith 5 10
25th/Peerless 19 18

"On Feb. 1 the city received a letter from Traffipax, Inc., requesting the
removal of cameras at each location. Therefore, the red light cameras will be decommissioned by March 31, 2010."
