New Red Light Cameras Will be Installed in Culver City This Spring

Culver City has announced that it will add red light cameras at three intersections across the city: Overland Avenue and Washington Boulevard, Sepulveda Boulevard and Washington Boulevard, and National Boulevard and Washington Boulevard. The city also wil remove cameras at four approaches/locations: eastbound Washington Place at Centinela Avenue, eastbound Washington Boulevard at Sawtelle Boulevard, and east and west bound Washington Boulevard at Helms Avenue.

Here's what the city's press release has to say on the matter:

"Over the past several years there has been considerable commercial development throughout the City and the volume of vehicles that travel our roads has increased. Culver City streets have become major regional thoroughfares on the West side of Los Angeles and are being utilized by motorists attempting to avoid congested freeways in the area.

"Based on new commercial businesses, vehicular congestion, as well as pedestrians and bicyclists that pass through and around the intersections at Overland Avenue and Washington Boulevard, Sepulveda Boulevard and Washington Boulevard and through National Boulevard and Washington Boulevard, CCPD decided that the red light camera program would be best served by installing photo enforcement equipment at these intersections. Rather than just increase the overall size of our program, we looked at intersections with lower traffic volume and/or fewer red light running incidents and sought to relocate those cameras to intersections with higher traffic volume and congestion (vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists) so to have a greater impact on deterring red light running incidents and improve traffic and pedestrian safety to those areas.

"The program currently operates photo enforcement equipment at eleven intersections with eighteen approaches and with the revisions; it would expand to twelve intersections with twenty approaches."
