Red Light Camera Program

The City of Des Plaines has implemented a Red Light Photo Enforcement Program at the intersection of Golf and Rand Roads. Two cameras have been placed at the intersection; one west bound and one east bound.  The primary objective of program is to provide 24-hour automated intersection enforcement and increase traffic safety by reducing accidents resulting from red light running violations.

Statistics indicate red light running is the leading cause of urban auto accidents. Motorists and pedestrians are more likely to be injured severely in accidents involving failure to obey traffic controls than in any other type of accident.

Motorists that receive a traffic citation through the Red Light Photo Enforcement Program can view video and pay their ticket online at: Motorists also have the right to contest the ticket at a hearing.

The hearing system is a local method to judge municipal violations as opposed to going through the County court process.
