COLORADO SPRINGS — The City of Colorado Springs has added an additional red light camera at Maizeland Road and Academy Boulevard as part of the “Red Light Safety Camera Program.”
Two cameras went live in April as part of the same program at the intersection of Black Forest and Woodmen, as well as Barnes and Tutt, and remain under the warning period before they start issuing citations this month.
The new camera at Maizeland and Academy went live on Thursday, May 5, and entered into a week-long calibration phase before it enters the warning period on May 12. The warning period will last for 30 days, and after June 12, drivers who enter the intersection after the light will recieve a $75 citation.
