Photo Enforcement

PhotoEnfThe City of Chattanooga began issuing tickets on July 16, 2007 from speed cameras installed in the Hixson Pike S curves. The goal is to reduce the number of accidents through this 24 hour speed enforcement program. Traffic Engineering provided the Police Department with the top accident locations to target with speed enforcement vans. The speed cameras photograph speeding vehicles and the vehicle's owner is mailed a citation. Click here to view a WRCB story and video about the speed cameras. Automated speed enforcement cameras are installed on the following streets:

•Barton Avenue
•Germantown Road
•Hixson Pike
•Mountain Creek Road
•Norcross Road
Chattanooga's red light enforcement program began in December 2007. Nearly 1,000 people lose their lives every year in the US due to red light violators. Automated red light enforcement cameras are installed for the following high accident intersections:
•Highway 153 at Gadd Road- northbound approach
•Highway 153 at Hamill Road- northbound approach

Traffic Engineering studies photo enforcement citation rates and traffic accidents to determine how we can use this tool to reduce traffic accidents and their leading cause, speeding.
