The red-light cameras work as follows: the red-light camera system operates ONLY when the traffic light is red - capturing images of actual red-light violations. The camera system captures three (3) photographic images of the alleged violation. The first image provides a view of the vehicle before crossing the white stop line and showing that the traffic light is red. The second image shows that the vehicle has continued through the intersection while the traffic light remains red. The third image shows the license plate of the offending vehicle. Personnel from the Village's Police Department will review all images to determine the validity of the alleged violation, and only after such review will a violation notice be issued. Such notices will be issued within twenty-one (21) days of the date of the violation and will include information on how an offender can view "on-line" the images of his/her red light violation captured by the automated camera system. Violators will have a minimum of fourteen (14) days from receipt of the violation notice to pay the civil penalty amount ($100) or request a hearing date.
As always, please continue to obey the traffic laws of the State of Illinois for your safety as well as the safety of others.
