The fine for running a red light in Arlington, when you’re caught by Police, is $162 plus 4 points on your license. The fine when you’re caught by new traffic cameras in Rosslyn: $50 and no points. The cameras are at the intersections of Lee Highway and Fort Myer Drive and North Lynn Street, designed to catch those salty individuals who decide to risk moving through to block the box in rush hour, or for those who gun it through the yellow. There are two others, at Washington Blvd and Lee Hwy at the Arlington/Falls Church border, and one at Fairfax and North Glebe in Ballston.
Through the 21st of July, the cameras are giving out warnings, but they’ll ramp up the revenue machine for the county starting thereafter.
