California Vehicle Code Section 21455.5 authorizes the installation of automated traffic enforcement systems, commonly known as red-light cameras, at intersections or other places where vehicles are required to stop, such as crosswalks. Any governmental agency that desires to operate red-light cameras must meet certain requirements, such as 1) identifying the placement of the cameras by signs that are visible to approaching traffic, 2) regulating the minimum yellow-light intervals, 3) making a public announcement of the existence of the camera at least 30 days prior to its use, and 4) issuing only warning notices for 30 days prior to issuing citations based upon the information obtained by a red light camera. California Vehicle Code Section 21455.5also sets forth guidelines for the operation and maintenance of the red light camera system and regulates the disclosure of information obtained from the system.

Red-light violations accounted for nearly 40% of the 2,397 accidents at Anaheim intersections between 2007 and 2009. In all, there were 12,858 traffic accidents during that period.
