Our most recent update on the installation of red light cameras in Lakeland listed locations and direction of travel for these cameras. Installation work continues as does our educational efforts via local broadcast outlets to remind drivers these cameras are just around the corner.
Having said that, please don't call us on June 2 and ask how many drivers "we caught" the day before. The cameras are set to go live on June 1 and will begin recording suspected violations for us to review. However, the camera system vendor wants to collect about a week's worth of data before our initial training sessions where our officers will learn how to process the violations. The vendor wants to use actual violations in our community to conduct the training. That training is scheduled for June 10.
If you run one of the red lights at the intersections being recorded by these cameras, you can expect to receive your violation notice in the mail shortly after that date.
Want to avoid receiving such a violation notice? Stop on red cameras ahead.
