Warrington Activates Bucks County’s FIRST Red Light Cameras - Just What #NewtownPA Needs! | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

Drivers passing through Warrington Township that fail to stop at a red light will now be caught by a state-of-the-art camera system and face a fine, officials recently announced.

 

Warrington is the first municipality in Bucks County and only the third in Pennsylvania to install the enforcement system designed to make the suburban community safer, the police department said in a statement.

 

The system, authorities said, will “encourage safer driving habits with a consistent presence to reduce red light violations and improve traffic flow. Best of all, it will help us save lives,” the department said.

 

The two township intersections are at Easton Road (Route 611) and Bristol Road; the other at Easton and Street roads. Warnings will be issued until late March after which violators will be ticketed and fined a civil monetary penalty of $100.
