Red light cameras activated in Tuscaloosa

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — The City of Tuscaloosa is moving forward with plans to install more red light cameras.

Cameras are being installed at intersections in various parts of town, but most will be placed at lights that intersect with McFarland Boulevard.

Wires are being placed at lights off Skyland Boulevard and Lurleen Wallace Boulevard, as well as James Harrison Parkway. The system will be activated Monday at locations at McFarland Boulevard and 37th Street East, McFarland Boulevard and Skyland Boulevard, and I-359 and Skyland Boulevard.

The new cameras are being installed and will add to the cameras already installed in the city at 15th Street and 6th Avenue East. More locations are expected to be added in coming months.

Though the cameras will be activated on Monday, tickets will not be issued until March, 10, 2014.

The Tuscaloosa Police Department says the fine for a red light violation is $110.
