Camera Update

Posted on 26th January 2011 at 09:11

The Longview Police Department is out with a reminder that the warning period for the Red Light Violation Detection Cameras will soon be over. Longview Police Captain Jim Duscha says that starting next Tuesday, February 1st, they’ll start issuing $124 tickets for each violation detected by the cameras. The cameras are located at 15th and Ocean Beach Highway, NW Nichols, and at 38th and Ocean Beach. Duscha says that the cameras went active on January 1st, and through the 18th of this month, had registered more than 300 violations, with warnings sent to the owners of those cars. He also says that they have another 100 violations to review, with less than seven days left in the warning period. Meanwhile, the 30-day warning period for the School Zone Speed Limit Detection cameras starts next Tuesday outside of Columbia Valley Gardens and Mint Valley Elementary Schools. Unlike the Red Light Cameras, which operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the School Zone cameras will only be active during school hours, and will not operate after school hours, on weekends, holidays or summer vacation. Full details on the program are available on the City of Longview website, or by calling Longview Police at 442-5800.
