MAP: Red Light Cameras

Speed through an intersection or make a rolling right turn on red at the wrong intersection, and you could be out $446. There are 404 red light cameras at 240 intersections across Los Angeles and four surrounding counties. They catch thousands of drivers each year. We've mapped each of those intersections and how many tickets were doled out over a nine month period from January to September 2010. Zoom in to find the intersections you frequent and see a street view of the cameras themselves.

Rolling Rights

You may be surprised to know how many of the tickets given out by red light cameras are because of rolling right turns, where you pull up to the red light, see no traffic, and roll into that right turn. In Los Angeles, 75 percent, or 26,288 of the tickets given out over a nine-month period were for drivers caught on camera making a rolling right turn.
