Chandler is taking the lens caps off photo enforcement cameras at four intersections Tuesday.

  • Arizona Avenue and Warner Road
  • Arizona Avenue  and Ray Road
  • Arizona Avenue and Ocotillo Road
  • Dobson and Ray roads

The intersections along Arizona Avenue will have cameras at the approaches for southbound traffic.

The cameras for the Dobson and Ray roads intersection will be at the approaches for southbound and westbound traffic.

If any of the cameras catch you in a moving violation at one of those intersections, you will get a warning in the mail. The City of Chandler is basically giving drivers a 30-day grace period to get used to the cameras.

Come Dec. 1, however, citations will be issued to speeders and red-light runners.

The Arizona Avenue cameras were in place with the City’s previous service vendor. The 24/7 cameras at Dobson and Ray roads are new. All of them are run by American Traffic Solutions, which has a private investigation business license.

The activation of these cameras brings the total number of intersections monitored with photo enforcement cameras to 11.

Seven sets of cameras at Chandler intersections went live for testing in early May.

  • Eastbound Ray Road at Alma School Road
  • Westbound Warner Road at Alma School Road
  • Southbound Alma School Road at Warner Road
  • Westbound Chandler Boulevard at Kyrene Road
  • Southbound McClintock Drive at Ray Road
  • Eastbound Ray Road at McClintock Drive
  • Westbound Chandler Boulevard at Dobson Road

Cameras at those intersections started generating citations on June 20.

As always, the Chandler Police Department reminds drivers to be alert when driving, avoid distractions and follow all traffic laws.

Scottsdale also resumed use of photo enforcement cameras in May.

In March, an opinion on photo enforcement by Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich had Valley cities scrambling to determine if they're in compliance. The ruling was that third-party vendors must be licensed as private investigators as required by state statute.
