Red Light Camera Safety Program

Wilmington's Red Light Camera Safety Program has gone digital. The technology enables the City to better enforce violations of the “right turn on red” laws as well as violations of traveling through a red light. The digital technology produces both still images and video of the violation, thus providing additional information to help determine whether a vehicle was forced into an intersection by an emergency vehicle, for example, and whether a vehicle made a right turn on red after coming to a complete stop which is required by law.

Vehicle owners whose vehicles violate the law are notified by mail of their violation and receive three higher resolution digital images of the violation. In addition, those who receive a notice of violation are able to log onto the red light citation public inquiry website and view a 10-second video of their violation. The digital still images and video will also be displayed in court when a vehicle owner exercises their right to appeal the issuance of a red light citation.

The fine for violating the red light traffic law, or the “right turn on red” traffic law, is $110.

Since its inception in 2001, Wilmington’s Red Light Camera Safety Program has reduced incidents of motorists violating red light traffic laws by more than 40% to 60% depending on the intersection. The program also significantly reduced the likelihood of injuries and death to motorists and their passengers, as well as reduced motor vehicle accidents overall.

Wilmington’s Red Light Camera Safety Program is managed by Baltimore-based ACS Government Solutions.
