The city of Kingston has settled on seven locations to install its first red light cameras.
According to a city news release, the cameras will start being installed this fall at the following locations:
- County Road 2 and Princess Mary Avenue/Craftsman Boulevard
- Division and Concession streets
- John Counter and Sir John A. Macdonald boulevards
- Johnson and Barrie streets
- Perth and Unity roads
- Princess Street and Bayridge Drive
- Princess Street and Centennial Drive
Although installations start this fall, the red light camera programs will not be in operation until March 2022.
The fine for running a red light is $325, as set by the Ontario Highway Traffic Act. Running a red light at these specific locations will result in a ticket being sent to the registered owner of the vehicle.
According to the city, tickets will only be issued when a vehicle fully enters a signalized intersection on a red light. Drivers who cross the stop bar on a green or amber light, drivers making a permitted turn on a red light, or drivers who stop on or just over the stop bar will not be ticketed.
