Another Red Light Camera Will Be Activated Friday

Sep 12, 2013

The city of Rochester says another intersection will be monitored by a camera -- Mt. Hope at Elmwood Avenues.

It will go live Friday morning at six.

This marks the 32nd intersection under the watchful lens of a red light camera.

The registered owner of a vehicle spotted running a red light is sent a summons in the mail.  

They can either appeal or pay a 50-dollar fine.

One Rochester resident has filed a lawsuit against the city over the red light cameras, claiming they violate due process because a ticket is sent to the lawful owner of the vehicle, instead of the actual driver.

The suit also argues the current law doesn't provide a fair hearing to challenge a video clip that's 13 seconds long.
