Proceed with Caution

Record #:
In 1998, Charlotte became the Southeast's first city to install cameras at selected intersections to catch red-light violators. Results showed a 70 percent decline in violations and 25 percent drop in accidents at these intersections. Other cities, including Raleigh and Chapel Hill, are now considering the program. An area of concern in using such an approach is making certain ticketed individuals have an opportunity to appeal.
