The Inquirer reports that a 40-day “grace-period” in which drivers in Abington cited by automatic red light cameras will be issued a warning. Now drivers who have been determined to have run a red-light will be fined $100 in addition to receiving a warning. 694 drivers have been issued since the cameras were installed.
Writes Jessica Parks for the Inquirer:
Abington – the only Pennsylvania municipality other than Philadelphia to try out the cameras – has posted them at three intersections: Old York and Susquehanna Roads; Old Welsh Road and Susquehanna; and Fitzwatertown and Moreland Roads.
Kelly said all of the violations were reviewed by an officer and 70 citations were thrown out as inconclusive. But of the 694 that held up, he said, only 26 percent were by Abington residents.
