Gatso to install red light cameras in US city of Albany

First published in The Global Road Safety Review 2015 as City of Albany opts for Gatso red light cameras

Gatso USA has been selected by the City of Albany to install red light cameras at 20 of the city’s busiest intersections, in what Gatso says is a clear resolve by the city to make its roads safer for its citizens, visitors and businesses.

The program will include 64 cameras across the 20 intersections. There is an expected two-month ramp-up period with a target start date for the initial units of 1 July. Along with public education materials and photo enforcement signage, drivers will have a ten-day warning period once the cameras are operational before the city starts mailing out actual notices of violation. Each violation will be treated in the same manner as a parking ticket and will carry a fine of US$50 which will be issued in the name of the vehicle owner and not the driver.
