Red-Light Camera Ticket FAQs

Red-light cameraRunning a red light is no joke — it puts you, pedestrians and other motorists in danger. And aside from putting a dent in your car, you can also put one in your wallet with a whopping $100 fine!

Here’s the deal: In some cases, a red light ticket doesn’t need to be issued in-person by a police officer. It can also be issued through the Red Light Camera Program.

Throughout the Philadelphia area, there are 30 intersections with Red Light Cameras installed, and if a vehicle goes through a red light at these intersections, a violation notice will be automatically sent to the owner’s address.

We encourage all motorists to obey the traffic laws. If you have been issued a fine for running a red light, here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) that can help you figure out your next steps:
