The City of Tuscaloosa has used a traffic monitoring camera to issue more than 780 citations in the past three months.
The Tuscaloosa News reports 784 citations were issued between Sept. 1 and Nov. 30 to drivers who ran a red light at the intersection of 15th Street and Sixth Avenue.
Drivers are fined $110. City Hall keeps $70 of each fine and $30 is given to Gatso USA Inc., the company hired to install and monitor the camera. The remaining $10 is given to the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center.
Red light cameras in Opelika generated more than 500 citations in the first full month.
Mayor Gary Fuller says 794 warnings were issued in April when the cameras started being used and motorists were getting used to them. The grace period ended when May started, and 533 citations were issued that month. He said June figures aren't complete, but he expects about 300 for the month.
