Frisco activates 4th red light camera

Posted: Updated:
FRISCO, Texas -

The City of Frisco hopes to cut down on red light runners, and the crashes they may cause by activating the city's fourth red light camera on Feb. 28.

The camera is perched at the intersection of Legacy Drive and Main Streets.

The city says within the last 18 months that intersection had 25 crashes, 10 were caused by someone running a red light.

"The crashes at this intersection caused by red light runners resulted in 12 citizens being injured and transported to the hospital. Our goal is to protect our citizens by reducing these numbers," said Frisco Police Department Lt. David Shilson.

The cameras appear to be working in slowing down drivers. The city reports an overall reduction in crashes at other intersections that have red light cameras deployed.
