The intersection Alexander Street and University Avenue is one of the intersections that will now be monitored by cameras that'll take a picture of any vehicle running a red light.

The area of Alexander and University is a busy one, so consider yourself warned that cameras are watching vehicles roll through here.

The city says the mission is to make the intersections safer for drivers and pedestrians. The red light cameras take two pictures of any vehicle that runs a red. The Rochester Police Department reviews the pictures and violators are then issued a ticket by the city parking bureau.

The fine is $50.

In April, the city updated the results of the cameras so far and said then that revenue from the ticket fees collected have added up to more than one million dollars; three times what the city initially expected.

Now the second camera going on line Friday is located at Court Street and Chestnut Street.

So far there are 31 active cameras in the city.
