RED LIGHT CAMERA PROGRAM IMPLEMENTATION
Red Light Camera System Installation
Where a contractor does the installation work, the normal construction inspection procedures employed by the State or local agency should be carried out for the installation of the red light camera equipment. Proper installation includes:
· Installation consistent with the equipment manufacturer's guidelines
and State or local agency specifications;
Installations should be thoroughly inspected before testing begins. A
comprehensive testing program should then be conducted using both simulated
and actual traffic before the system is placed into unattended operation.
No warning letters or citations should be issued until it is determined
that the system is working accurately and reliably.
