New Traffic Camera Keeps an Eye on Red Light Runners

By Kelly Balamuth on January 9, 2012

A new traffic camera installed at the corner of Fell Street and Masonic Avenue in San Francisco will be keeping an eye on drivers who run the red light at this intersection, according to a recent article in The San Francisco Examiner. The camera will provide evidence of illegal turns and other traffic violations at the intersection, making it easier for law enforcement to ticket those who break the rules and put others’ lives at risk.

The intersection has been the site of many pedestrian accidents and bicycle accidents in recent years. One accident, in December 2010, sent a bicyclist to the hospital.

Both Fell Street and Masonic Avenue are busy thoroughfares, making it difficult for pedestrians and bicyclists to cross the streets. Drivers who run the red light at this intersection are frequent, as are drivers who make an illegal left turn from Fell onto Masonic. Both situations increase the chances of a bicycle or pedestrian accident.

The intersection was revamped in 2008 to make signals clearer for pedestrians and bicyclists, but many drivers still pay only casual attention to those who aren’t in cars. The city hopes that the new camera will remind drivers to think twice before making any risky or illegal maneuvers.

When a car hits a pedestrian or bicyclist, serious injuries can result.
