  RED LIGHT PHOTO ENFORCEMENT
  Does the red light camera system photograph all violators? No, it does not. Watch this video to gain a better understanding of how the red light camera system works.

In 1999, the City of West Hollywood began its Photo Safety Program to stop motorists from running red lights. As part of this new program, automated traffic signal safety cameras were installed at intersections that have a large number of accidents and red light violations. The Photo Safety Program uses the latest technology to photograph people who drive through an intersection after the light has turned red.

Red Light Camera Transparency  

How does it work?

Red light cameras and associated detection equipment are permanently installed at intersections that have a high accident rate, and provide 24-hour traffic surveillance. If a motorist runs a red light, photographs will be taken of the driver and the vehicle's license plate. A ticket is then sent to the vehicle's registered owner.

Where are the cameras be located in West Hollywood?

There are 24 camera housings located at the following intersections:

- Fountain Ave & Crescent Heights Blvd
- Sunset Blvd & La Cienega Blvd
- Fairfax Ave & Fountain Ave
- Melrose Ave & La Cienega Blvd
- La Brea Ave & Fountain Ave
- Beverly Blvd & Robertson Blvd
- Santa Monica Blvd & La Brea Ave
- Santa Monica Blvd & Fairfax Ave

What do I do if I get a ticket?

A citation issued through the West Hollywood Photo Safety Program is the same as any other traffic citation issued within our City's limits.

If you would like to view better images of your violation, using your citation number and PIN number listed, go to www.cite-web.com

You can pay the fine, which is established by state law at $465.00*, or you can appear in court to contest the citation or even attend traffic school.

What if I wasn't the driver of my vehicle?

If you are the vehicle's registered owner and someone else was driving your car, you may complete a portion of the citation that identifies the driver and return it by mail. The ticket can be dismissed and reissued to the person who was driving your car.

If you have been issued a citation and would like to make an appointment to view your photos or discuss the citation, please call (877) 786-7234. For further questions or concerns regarding the Photo Safety Program, please contact Deputy Zenon Porche at (310) 855-8850 ext 505 (or you can e-mail him at zjporche@lasd.org).
