Red Means Stop

Be warned: KCBS reports that L.A.'s red light cameras will soon be back in business.

The station writes on its site:

The city's contract with Affiliated Computer Services lapsed last year and red-light cameras at 16 intersections were deactivated. The contract was not renewed because officials learned that 20 percent of photographed red-light violations were dismissed "due to lack of clear evidence to prove the violation," according to police.

The City Council has approved a $3.12 million contract with Nestor to install camera systems at as many as 32 intersections. Intersections where cameras will be activated in the next few months are:

La Brea Avenue and Rodeo Road; Soto Street and Olympic Boulevard; Imperial Highway and Figueroa Street; Florence Avenue at Figueroa Street; Victory and Laurel Canyon boulevards; DeSoto Avenue and Roscoe Boulevard; Van Nuys Boulevard and Nordhoff Street; Wilshire and Westwood boulevards; Sepulveda and National boulevards; and Sepulveda Boulevard and Manchester Avenue.

You've been warned! (Link via LA Observed.)
