It happens in a flash and on King Edward Avenue it doesn't take long to catch a red light runner.

According to data obtained from the city of Ottawa, red light cameras on King Edward and St. Patrick and King Edward and St Andrews issued the most red light camera tickets in 2016. The two locations issued a combined total of nearly 3,000 tickets. Each red light camera ticket is $325. 

"Red light cameras help with the reduction of right angle collisions," said Phil Landry, the Director of Traffic Services for the city of Ottawa. "They are usually at high speeds and cause the most injuries as well."
