The City of Suffolk is rolling out four types of Traffic Enforcement Cameras:
- Red Light Photo Enforcement Cameras
- School Zone Speed Enforcement Cameras
- School Bus Stop-Arm Enforcement Cameras
- Work Zone Speed Enforcement Cameras
The City of Suffolk has collaborated with a private vendor, Altumint, to install and maintain the technology. The Suffolk Police Department is responsible for reviewing all violations to determine if a citation and fine will be issued.
RED LIGHT PHOTO ENFORCEMENT CAMERAS
Nine intersections throughout Suffolk will be outfitted with red light enforcement cameras installed. Traffic enforcement signage will be visible to drivers and a 30-day warning period will be in effect before cameras go live later this spring. During the warning period, violators will receive a cautionary letter mailed to their residence. After the warning period, violators will receive a $50.00 fine.
