How the System Works
Each intersection is equipped with a high resolution, high-speed digital camera. The camera is activated when a vehicle enters the intersection after the traffic signal has turned red. The camera takes a series of two images to document the violation.

The program operates 24-hours per day, seven days a week and operates in all weather conditions. The Sugar Land Police Department reviews every violation before a notice of violation is issued to the registered owner of the vehicle. The notice of violation contains images of the violating vehicle before it enters the intersection, while it is in the intersection, and of the license plate.
