All Red Light Cameras Are Now Up and Running

Nine new red light cameras are now snapping pictures of violators in Lubbock. Even though the cameras are now working at all 12 intersections, NewsChannel 11's Nicole Pesecky reports it seems many residents here aren't excited to get their pictures taken. 

You may or may not like it, but it's official, they're here. Nine more red light cameras began operating Sunday. Despite the passage of a law giving the state half of all revenue generated by red light cameras. The Lubbock City Council took a vote and decided to proceed with the cameras and most people are not happy with that decision.

"Since the governor signed the bill, he did they city's not getting any money and the money grabs over."

But not everyone NewsChannel 11 talked with was so outraged.

"I've seen a lot of people run red lights and almost cause accidents. I've almost been in an accident because someone ran a red light."

Three cameras have already been catching violators:

  • Avenue Q South & I-27
  • 66th & I-27
  • 19th Street & Indiana Ave.
  • The last nine intersections that are now in business are:

  • 19th Street & University Ave.
  • 19th Street & Frankford Ave.
  • South Loop 289 & Indiana Ave.
  • South Loop 289 & Quaker Ave.
  • 50th Street & Quaker Ave.
  • 50th Street & East I-27
  • 50th Street &  West I-27
  • 50th Street & Ave. Q 
  • 34th Street & I-27
  • One Lubbock resident says, "I don't think it's going to save lives, it's an irritation and infringement on the public."

    But the city still says its about safety and they're the ones giving the green light.
