Red Light Camera Program
Traffic studies show that red-light running is a problem at several intersections in Nassau County. The goal of the red-light camera program is to change driver behavior. Studies across the country prove that red-light camera programs are successful at reducing the number of red-light runners and increasing compliance with traffic laws, thus making roadways safer for all drivers and pedestrians.

AAA: NYS Red-Light Camera Programs
"The only program to receive positive reviews from AAA was the Nassau County program, which AAA called 'exceedingly transparent and accessible.' Nassau County offered tours of its violation reviewing facility, and documented a decrease in all types of crashes and a decrease in revenue that reflected fewer violations."
For Red Light Camera Violations issued to a business, the driver/operator cannot represent the company at a hearing unless a notarized authorization from the business entity is presented.
