HONOLULU – The Hawaiʻi Department of Transportation (HDOT) advises motorists that the Red-Light Safety Cameras (RLSC) at McCully Street and Algaroba Street will begin issuing warnings Friday, April 14.

That will bring nine of the ten intersections selected for the two-year pilot program into operation. The new camera at the McCully/Algaroba intersection will issue warnings for thirty days before being activated to issue citations.

The penalty for running a red light in the City and County of Honolulu is typically $97, but can be up to $200. 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, according to 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
