Red light running is down in the City of Murfreesboro and has been on the decrease since the red light cameras were first installed about 8 years ago.

Murfreesboro installed the cameras in 2009 due to an increasing number of traffic fatalities at intersections. Numbers of crashes at intersections have dropped by 37 percent since the cameras were first installed.


City Manager Rob Lyons stated...

Some still question that if they receive a ticket in the mail for running a red light, do they really have to pay it?

In 2007 there were 1,692 crashes at signalized intersections in Murfreesboro. In 2015, despite a rise in the population and the growing number of traffic signals, the number of crashes at intersections were down to 1,064 crashes.
