Red-light cameras keep phones ringing
League City's red-light cameras are continuing to generate plenty of calls to the city.
On Friday, the city started mailing tickets to those who run red lights at five intersections in the city. Prior to that, there was a one-month warning period in which violators were mailed warnings.
Some violators who have received those warnings have called the city to complain that the notice that they received lacks details, city spokeswoman Kristi Wyatt said.
It's just a warning letter," she said. If you actually get a ticket, you'll get a lot more information. You'll be able to go online and see the video or the license plate number to verify it's actually your car. There's lots of other options."
The city is also still receiving calls from drivers who insist they stopped at a red light, but saw the flash of a red-light camera, Wyatt said.
If someone runs a light on the other side, it's still going to flash," she said.
The city did not know how many red-light tickets had been issued so far, but many who have received them are calling the city about the $75 civil citations, Wyatt said. She emphasized that the tickets are handled by Redflex Traffic Systems, not the city's municipal court.
Redflex can be contacted at 1-877-847-2338 Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Several people who have been ticketed have said that they will not pay their citation, which would not result in receiving an outstanding warrant, Wyatt said.
But those who don't pay will be turned over to a collection agency, she said.
You should pay your ticket now instead of later," Wyatt said.
