Columbus police consider using cameras to nab drivers who run red lights
The Columbus police department is considering using cameras to catch drivers who run red lights. If a driver runs a red light, cameras would snap a picture of the car and its license plate. The police department would send the driver a ticket. The penalty would be less than if an officer had personally spotted the violation.
Police spokeswoman Sherri Mercurio says the cameras would be placed at the city’s most dangerous intersections.
Officials will discuss the proposal at a public hearing Tuesday evening at the Columbus Health Department on Parson’s Avenue.
