Annual data reports - red light cameras
Red light cameras on state highways
Texas Transportation Code §707.004 requires local authorities to monitor and annually report to TxDOT statistical information on crashes occurring at intersections monitored by red light camera enforcement systems. The code requires TxDOT to publish the information submitted by the local authorities.
TxDOT annually publishes notification of the post-activation reporting criteria and deadlines in the Texas Register. Notification is also sent by email to the contact person for each municipality known to have active red light camera enforcement systems.
Effective June 2, 2019, per HB 1631, 86th Texas Legislature, local authorities are no longer permitted to install or operate photographic traffic signal enforcement systems, or red light cameras, and use of evidence from photographic enforcement systems is prohibited.
The new law does allow municipalities with ordinances enacted before May 7, 2019, that entered into a contract for the administration and enforcement of a photographic traffic signal enforcement system to continue to operate the system under the ordinance, contract, and Chapter 707 of the Texas Transportation Code until the expiration date specified in the contract, as long as the contract does not include language allowing termination of the agreement if the systems are banned. These municipalities should continue to submit Post-Activation Annual Reports to TxDOT through the year after the expiration of their contract.
Note: The information in the reports below was submitted to TxDOT by the various municipalities in response to the reporting requirements in TTC §707.004. The reports are published as submitted. TxDOT did not verify the reports for completeness or accuracy of the data.
The pre-activation reports and 2021-2016 post-activation reports, as well as the TTI Photographic Traffic Enforcement Systems Evaluation Reports, are available on this page. The 2009-2015 post-activation reports are available on other pages.
