COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Two more red light cameras are going up at intersections in south Colorado Springs, bringing the total number of intersections with cameras in the city up to six.

The new cameras are at Lake Ave. and E. Cheyenne Mountain Boulevard, and Airport Road and S. Academy Boulevard.

Colorado Springs police say there's a 30-day warning period; drivers who are caught by the cameras in this period will receive a warning instead of a citation with a fine.

After the warning period, though, anyone caught in the intersection running a red light will get a $75 citation.

    1. Cha ching for the city. Camera photographs car, driver and license plate. Ticket arrives by mail. All that revenue without having to have a manned vehicle. Red light camera manufacturers and managers have been successfully taken to court for rigging the signals to short out the yellow light, making more money for the city, a percentage of which was paid to the managing company. In CA they virtually made the cameras useless by having lawyers in the court waiting rooms advising people with those tickets on what to say for the judge to dismiss the ticket. True story.
