In 2006, the City of Duncanville contracted with Redflex Traffic System to install red light photo enforcement camera systems at select intersections. The purpose of the red light camera systems is to reduce traffic crashes and eliminate the resulting injuries, fatalities, and loss of property. Nationwide, red light running causes approximately 206,000 crashes, 934 fatalities, and 176,000 injuries each year. The economic impact of red light running crashes is estimated at $14 billion annually in property damage, medical bills, lost productivity, and insurance hikes.
Currently there are eight camera systems operational at four intersections within the City of Duncanville. These intersections are:
- Cockrell Hill Road / US Highway 67
- Danieldale Road / US Highway 67
- Wheatland Road / Cedar Ridge Drive
- Wheatland Road / Cockrell Hill Road
The revenues generated from the system will be utilized for traffic and transportation safety infrastructure improvements within the city.
