Red Light Enforcement Camera For Pantops Delayed

The idea of putting a red light traffic camera on Pantops has been put on hold. Albemarle Police Chief Steve Sellers (pictured) says an enforcement camera at the intersection of 20 North and 250 East is being delayed at the recommendation of the county traffic engineer. Sellers says that’s due to concerns about congestion, pedestrian safety issues and ongoing traffic studies in that area. The supervisors last year approved a red light camera for the 250E-20N intersection. Sellers is recommending that the overall red light enforcement program continue, including the current one at the intersection of 29 North and Rio Road. Sellers says the Photosafe Program brought in about $83,000 in 2011 and $88,000 in 2012. But that dropped to just over $57,000 in 2013. He says revenue will continue to decline as driver behavior improves and the number of tickets goes down.
