MEDFORD, Ore. — Medford Police are proposing expanding red light cameras to four new intersections.
There are already two red light cameras in place. They bring in an average of $40,000 per year, which does not include the officer’s time to review photos.
Every violation is reviewed by a sworn police officer. They say more importantly, the cameras cause a reduction in accidents.
“At a McAndrews and Biddle was approximately 33 accidents a year prior to photo enforcement and a reduced to 22 and at Stewart and Barnett it was around 22 and reduced to 10,” said Medford Deputy Police Chief Randy Sparacino.
The proposed intersections include Columbus and Stewart, Riverside and Jackson, Highway 62 and Vilas, and Table Rock Road and North Pacific Highway.
