       PRESS RELEASE The installation of the Red Light Cameras is
complete
       and they are active and operational as of May 1, 2009 at 0001
hrs (1
       minute after midnight). The intersections with the red light
cameras
       are: 1) Wilma Rudolph/Trenton Rd; 2) Wilma Rudolph/I-24; and 3)
Ft
       Campbell Blvd/Gate 3.

       Even though the cameras are operational, the entire month of May
will
       constitute a warning period for drivers. The cameras will record
the
       red light violation and the registered owner of the vehicle will
be
       mailed a Warning Notice of Violation (citation), but there will
no
       fine assessed or action required by the vehicle owner.

       Beginning June 1, 2009, any Notice of Violation received by the
       registered owner must be responded to by paying the fine
($50.00) or
       requesting the case be heard by a judge. If the case is heard by
a
       judge and the person is found guilty it will cost $135.70.

       We want to reiterate what is considered running a red light. The
       vehicle must enter the intersection after the light has already
       turned RED. The intersection is defined and generally marked
with
       solid white stop bar on each road entering an intersection.
Running a
       yellow light or the light turning red while a person's vehicle
is
       trapped in an intersection awaiting an opportunity to turn (e.g.
       waiting to turn left) will not register as a red light
violation.
       Also, if a right turn on red is allowed at an intersection, the
motor
       vehicle operator must come to a complete stop at the solid white
stop
       bar, before making the turn. A complete stop means total
cessation of
       movement.
