Wilmington adds to total number of traffic cameras

0

The City of Wilmington released the locations of more than 40 safety cameras that are either already in place or will be located at other intersections.

The cameras are designed to prevent motorists from traveling through a red light.

The city will eliminate some cameras due to improved safety numbers while adding others. The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) today approved the city’s plan for 2019, which totals 44 cameras at 42 intersections by the middle of the year.

The city has a large traffic camera presence, which has drawn fire from critics who see the system as a revenue source than a safety measure.

Under state law, the city works with DelDOT to review a slate of camera locations based on crash information from DelDOT and the Wilmington Police Department Wilmington’s total safety cameras for 2019 will include 28 existing cameras, cameras at six intersections that will be eliminated, and 16 new cameras.

The city estimates that the installation of the 16 new cameras will take from between four to six months to complete through a phased rollout, with the first cameras expected to be online in June 2019. Wilmington Police are responsible for reviewing all violations before a ticket is issued.

The following are lists of cameras that will remain in place in 2019, are new cameras, or will be eliminated:
