In an effort to improve traffic safety and reduce collisions at high traffic intersections, the City of North Richland Hills has implemented a Red Light Photo Enforcement Program. This program is designed to augment existing efforts by police officers to curtail red light violations.
Red-light running is a serious intersection safety issue across the nation. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2008 there were more than 700,000 intersection-related injury crashes, which resulted in more than 7,770 deaths across the nation. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has found that red light photo enforcement, in conjunction with public awareness, can modify behavior and has been shown to reduce red light violations and intersection crashes.
In North Richland Hills if a vehicle enters one of the following intersections after the light turns red, it is detected automatically and the camera system records the violation.
Davis Boulevard and Harwood Road
Davis Boulevard and Lola Drive
Davis Boulevard and Maplewood Avenue
Davis Boulevard and Mid-Cities Boulevard
Rufe Snow Drive and Dick Lewis Drive
Rufe Snow Drive and Mid-Cities Boulevard
Rufe Snow Drive and NE Loop 820
After a violation has occurred, a $75 civil citation is then sent to the registered owner of the vehicle. The citation includes photos of the violation and a video is available for the vehicle's owner to view online. The citation does not go against the violator's driving record.
