Another camera system to catch red-light runners has been installed in Menlo Park -- this time at the intersection of El Camino Real and Glenwood Avenue.
The latest camera system is currently up and running as part of a 30-day trial period when red-light runners will receive warnings -- instead of tickets -- in the mail. The trial period starts Sept. 5 and ends Oct. 7, according to Menlo Park police.
The system of video and still-image cameras is intended to catch red-light runners heading northbound on El Camino Real through the intersection, according to police. When the trial period ends, alleged violators will be mailed tickets with fines of at least $378.
The El Camino Real/Glenwood Avenue intersection is the third Menlo Park spot to be equipped with the cameras. Cameras have been helping police ticket drivers at the intersection of Willow Road and Bayfront Expressway since June 11. Cameras aimed to catch violators heading in either direction on El Camino Real at Ravenswood Avenue will go live on Sept. 13.
