Remember those red light cameras that Arlington installed for your safety, last month? Well, today is the day of reckoning. Arlington PD will start issuing $50 infractions to drivers the cameras catch blowing red lights. To be fair, this is a significantly lighter fine than would be issue by a cop catching you doing the same, and you won’t get any points on your license. Remember, citizens, these cameras are there for your safety, and are in no way a revenue generator for the city’s budget.
And, in case you’re wondering, the cameras are at the intersections of Lee Highway – Fort Myer Dr, and Lee Highway – North Lynn St.
