Red Light Cameras Near Long Beach

Red light cameras often are visible throughout the area.

A shame- the next time politicians in TOH or the other villages say they did not raise taxes then point out to them the red light cameras. Further remark about all the tickets given for turning on red. Its time to tell them we won't take it anymore!

You must stop for 4 full seconds before making a right on red. Anything else is called a California Roll and subject to a fine.

Uber cheesy way to raise taxes. Worse than sheriffs in the hick towns down south fleecing Florida bound vacationers in the '40's and 50's. Vote out the bums who had them installed.

I pass through 8 RLC intersections to and from work every day. That's 40 times per week, 2000 times per year. I've not had one ticket. Not one. I want more of these cameras, and I want the fines doubled too.

I recieved a rash of these fines within a few weeks of the cameras being installed on Austin Blvd. Now when approaching intersections with camera I've learned to slow down. I have not had a red light ticket since. I assume auto accidents are reduced as well. Speed kills. Must confess that right on red ticket, where there was no oncoming traffic, and my speed was 4mph peed me off. I avoid that corner now. The entrance to Roosevelt Field Mall at Old Country Rd. looks like a strobe light show.

The article fails to mention that a private company is acting like bounty hunters. They pitch the idea to the County to make money- splitting the ticket fee. Part 2 is the company acting as repo men by towing or booting cars that don't pay. This is not justice but revnue raising. The guy talking this up probably works for them and makes money off the cars just like the predator tow operators. Shame on the poiticans- shame on the stupid voters or those who don't vote.

There is a very simple way to put an end to the red light cameras, and all the political cronyism and profit making...And it can all be boiled down to a few words: Stop at red lights. Voila.
Howie December 04, 2013 at 09:27 PM
It's when you are exceeding the speed limit and the light turns yellow you are unable to slow or stop, you cross the intersection as the light turns red. Just by doing the speed limit will allow you to stop in time.

Come to a full stop behind the line for 4 seconds......no ticket. Whining about trying to make the area safer and who collects the fines just obscures the facts.
Marty Miller December 05, 2013 at 07:42 AM
The 4 seconds stop is not true. Look in the NY State drivers manual about defining a stop at a stop sign or for right on red. There is no time limit mentioned at all. As long as your speed hits zero for any amount of time behind the stop line, you are good to go. A "rolling stop" where you did not come completely to rest will result in a ticket.
Eddie December 05, 2013 at 07:54 AM
Yes, Marty. The camera's radar equipment will recognize a stop as short as a tenth of a second. Guess how I know... But I suppose if you stop for only a 20th of a second, you might have a problem.

I had my share of these tickets when the cameras were originally installed in Oceanside. It makes more economic sense to have these cameras installed, then it does to have cops sitting at major intersections waiting to catch someone. And thanks for the "right on red" explanation - I had no idea why I got that ticket.

I heard from a source recently that they are adding a red light camera on the Long Beach Blvd / Park Ave intersection. Can anyone confirm this?
Patrick Smith December 10, 2013 at 06:07 AM
Give me a camera ticket anyday over a cop ticket ,as of now no points
