3 New Red-Light Cameras Activated In Philly

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

You may want to think twice before running a red light this morning.

The Philadelphia Parking Authority is activating brand-new red-light cameras in the city Friday morning.

It's an effort to make intersections safer for pedestrians and drivers alike.

The three new cameras are at intersections in Northeast Philadelphia.

The latest locations are Academy Road and Grant Avenue, Woodhaven and Knights roads, and Bustleton Avenue and Byberry Road.

A grace period now goes into effect, but after Dec. 18, violators will face a $100 fine.

There are now over 100 cameras at 24 different city intersections.

The PPA says signs are posted with the proper warnings for drivers to know they are approaching a red-light camera intersection. All cameras have been tested and are in perfect working order. The yellow signals have all been timed properly. Both PennDOT and the City of Philadelphia have tested the yellow signals and ensured they are all 4 seconds each.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
