Staff report

Red Bank will begin using its red-light cameras to issue speeding tickets beginning this Saturday, according to a statement issued by the city this afternoon.

Citations issued during the first 30 days of the program will be warnings only, according to the statement, with live enforcement set to begin Jan. 21.

Red Bank has been using red-light cameras at the intersections of Ashland Terrace at Dayton Boulevard and Signal Mountain Road at Dayton Boulevard since January 2006. The red-light ticketing program will continue along with the speed monitoring.

The city plans to supplement that with a mobile speed van sometime next month. That program also will have a 30-day grace period, according to city officials.

Meanwhile, Chattanooga is launching a red-light camera program beginning today. The warning period for that program will run through Jan. 17 before actual citations are issued at Brainerd and Moore roads and Martin Luther King Boulevard and Pine Street.
