The city of Denton is expanding a pilot program which traffic engineers say is designed to make intersections with red light cameras safer.
In April of last year, the timing of yellow lights at the intersection of West Oak Street and Carroll Boulevard was extended by a full second. One result, according to city officials, was a significant drop in the number of tickets issued to people who run red lights.
Beginning March 1, the program is being expanded to two traffic signals at Interstate 35E and U.S. Highway 377. More red light tickets are issued for violations at that intersection, than any of the other 10 cross streets in Denton with red light cameras.
