Cameras intended to catch drivers who run red lights will be installed at Washington and La Cienega boulevards, officials said.
A pair of cameras will photograph the front and back of vehicles that go through red lights at the busy intersection, which experiences a high level of traffic collisions, said Sgt. Seth Fogel of the Culver City Police Department.
During a 30-day trial period that begins Sept. 14, drivers who run a red light will be issued warnings by mail but will not be cited, said city public information officer Randi Joseph.
After the introductory period, violators will be fined $270. Citations are sent by mail, accompanied by the photos.
If the camera proves successful in reducing the number of collisions, the program may be expanded to other streets, Joseph said.
