There are devices that look like cameras on traffic signals in the City to detect vehicles as they approach the intersection. The detection of vehicles is necessary to provide information to the computer that controls the traffic signal at the intersection. The device is focused on 50 feet to 100 feet of the lane approaching to the signal. When a vehicle enters the space, a command is sent to the signal computer to change the signal. These cameras do not detect red light or speeding violations and are not connected to a recording device. Also, license plates, and vehicle occupants are not distinguishable in the video image. For additional information or questions on this topic please submit a service request or contact the City Engineering Division at 720-898-7740.
