Traffic Cameras are Coming Back

Traffic control cameras will be working again in mid-April, the Transit and Ground Transportation Authority confirms.

Although implementation has been repeatedly postponed, Chief of Operations of Traffic and Road Safety Carlos Ayuso said delays are due to the installation of equipment from Brazil.

Starting January, signs will be installed to indicate the location of the radar-control cameras as part of a three-month information campaign about the system and related fines.

The cameras will capture license plate numbers and detailed information about the infraction. The traffic violator would then be notified to the e-mail or phone on file with the Registry of Motor Vehicles and have five days to dispute the claim.

The purpose of the cameras is not only to reduce traffic accidents but to help do away with the common practice of bribing police officers at ticketing time.
