The Philadelphia Parking Authority came up with a program to install red light cameras at several intersections. There are currently thirteen intersections in the city with cameras in place. Nine of those intersections are on Roosevelt Boulevard. Grant Ave, Rhawn St, Red Lion Rd, and Welsh Rd are some of the more frequently ticketed areas.
The parking authority recently released their annual report for the fiscal year 2008. There were a total of 92,826 citations given along with 6,408 warnings. This lead to a net income of almost $4 million for the city. The report also shows an overwhelming number of citations occurred late at night. With accident totals and citations still high, driving in the Northeast or any other part of the city is still a dangerous game.
