Termination of the Automated Photo Red Light Program

Los Angeles, California – Last year, the Los Angeles Police Commission directed the Department to discontinue its Automated Photo Red Light Program (APRLP), effective July 31, 2011.  As a result, the Department deactivated all the program's enforcement cameras and discontinued issuing citations for any new violations.  During this time, the Los Angeles City Council voted to implement a phase out plan for the APRLP that involved maintaining a six-month, followed by a month-to-month, contract extension with the vendor so that the Department could continue to have access to the APRLP data base.  This access was needed so officers could continue to obtain video evidence of violations for the purposes of testifying in court for those citations being contested.

On Tuesday, March 26, 2012, the Los Angeles Police Commission directed the Department to terminate the phase out portion of the APRLP effective April 1, 2012.  This resulted in the LAPD no longer having access to the APRLP data base and the necessary video evidence contained within for officers to testify in court.   Consequently, the LAPD will no longer direct officers to appear in court for any photo red light citation being contested.  The LAPD has requested that the court dismiss all pending and outstanding photo red light traffic citations issued by the LAPD.  These citations would include the citations that have not been resolved and/or have gone to collections.

Despite the LAPD’s request to dismiss all remaining photo red light citations and directing officers to not appear in court, community members are reminded that this does not absolve them of their duty to resolve the citation with the Court.  Should there be questions regarding a particular photo red light citation, community members are encouraged to contact the Court directly at 213-742-1884.  Community members can also check the status of a citation and conduct many other court transactions online at www.lasuperiorcourt.org.  Additionally, community members have the option of appearing in person at the court location indicated on their citation.

If you have any other questions, you may reach the LAPD Photo Red Light Hotline at 213-486-0685.
