HONOLULU – The Hawaiʻi Department of Transportation (HDOT) advises motorists that the Red-Light Safety Camera (RLSC) at S. Beretania Street and Piʻikoi Street will begin issuing warnings on Wednesday, March 29, 2023.

The activation of the S. Beretania and Piʻikoi RLSC will add a third site to those currently issuing warnings for red-light violations. Hawai‘i’s RLSCs issue warnings for a 30-day period before they are activated to issue citations.

The penalty for running a red-light in the City and County of Honolulu is typically $97. A vehicle is considered in violation of Hawai‘i Revised Statute 291C-32 if it does not stop at the stop line when faced with a traffic signal that is steady red. Red-light running or disregard of traffic signals has resulted in 1,879 crashes statewide over the last five years of available data.

HDOT reminds all O‘ahu motorists that red-light running will be automatically enforced at the 10 RLSC sites. A complete list of locations and more information on the pilot can be found at
