Cameras Catching Violators Who Aren't Turning Right on Red Properly

by Jessica Cervantez

With the red light cameras installed in Lufkin, drivers need to be on the look-out.

Not only will they take your picture if you run red-lights, but if you make an inappropriate right turn, chances are you'll get your picture taken as well. You must make a complete stop before you turn. If you do, the Lufkin police department says, and your picture is taken anyway, the picture should show your speed.

Lt. David Young, with the Lufkin police dept, said, "In general, your picture is not taken if you stop like you're supposed to, but if you're going fast enough to trigger the camera and it starts your picture will be taken." 

Already 30 accused violators have filed to contest their tickets.
