More red-light cameras coming to Collier

Find out where and when to expect ...

— Ten more red-light cameras will go live in Collier County in early August, bringing the total number of cameras to 12.

Collier County is one of more than 350 communities nationwide that use red-light cameras to help keep motorists safe. The first two cameras, located at the intersection of Airport-Pulling and Pine Ridge roads, were activated in April.


The program is made possible through a contract between the county and vendor American Traffic Solutions. A CCSO deputy reviews the photographs of each alleged infraction and determines whether a violation occurred.

CCSO and the Collier County Transportation Services Division want drivers to be aware that the cameras are in place. Transportation staff members are posting signs at each intersection where cameras are installed alerting drivers that they are there. In addition, CCSO will maintain a list of intersections with cameras on its Web site,

The cameras will be at the following locations and will be activated as the contractor completes hook-up procedures at each one.

Northbound Airport-Pulling Road at Davis Boulevard

Eastbound Pine Ridge Road at Livingston Road

Westbound Pine Ridge Road at Livingston Road

Red-light running is dangerous. In 2007 there were 132 red-light crashes in Collier County. Nationwide, more than 1,000 people are killed and more than 180,000 people are injured each year due to red-light running. These crashes cost motorists a collective $14 billion annually, according to the National Highway Safety Administration..

CCSO offers these tips for red-light safety:
