SIERRA VISTA - Safety cameras at State Route 92 and Foothills Drive will start their 30-day warning period Friday, January 10th through February 9. The cameras will be fully operational the next day.
Drivers who speed and/or run the red light during the warning period will receive letters reminding them to reduce their speeds and help prevent major accidents, injuries, and fatalities by stopping for the red light.
The last remaining camera planned for Sierra Vista is at the intersection of State Route 90/92 and Fry Blvd and will begin its warning period on February 10.
Nearly 100 percent of citation fees in Sierra Vista are retained by Cochise County Justice Courts in exchange for providing municipal court services. By law, the City is required to accept $4 per paid citation for police safety needs.
Drivers can learn more about common violations captured by the cameras at a free Driver's Refresher Course offered by the Sierra Vista Police Department. Classes will be held on Wednesday, January 15 at the police station. Limited seats are available for the class offered from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Call 452-7500 to reserve a seat.
