New red light camera goes live Friday
Rochester, N.Y.- Theres a new red light camera to watch out for in the city of Rochester.
Starting Friday, the intersection at Mt. Hope Avenue and Elmwood Avenue will go live as part of Rochester's Red Light Photographic Enforcement Program.
The city plans to use red light cameras at as many as 50 intersections as part of an ongoing effort to improve public safety by reducing traffic accidents.
Intersections are selected based on crash data and video surveys.

The violation is a civil penalty and is not reported to insurance companies and does not generate points on a driver's license.
