State starts processing citations under controversial red light camera pilot
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Heads up, drivers: The state has started issuing citations to red light runners based on a video camera posted at Vineyard Boulevard and Liliha Street.
It’s one of two intersections with red light cameras under a controversial pilot program.
And it’s the first to be used for citations.
The state said the red light camera at Vineyard and Liliha was installed in September and warning letters to red light runners were issued starting Oct. 1.
