Red Light Photo Enforcement Program
Stop on Red - Automated Traffic Enforcement (ATE)
The City of Council Bluffs utilizes automated camera technology for the detection of red light violations. This technology allows the Police Department to monitor more intersections with fewer officers, helping to make our streets safer.
Each location of ATE cameras is clearly marked with signage in advance of the intersection. A still photograph and video are taken of the vehicle entering the intersection against a red light. You can review the video at . In order to review the video, you will need to enter City Code CBLF. After verification and approval by a police officer, a citation is sent to the registered owner of the vehicle. This citation is considered a municipal infraction and is not reported to the State of Iowa or any other Department of Transportation and does not become a part of the vehicle owner’s driving record.
If you have questions about the "Stop on Red" program, please or call at (712) 328-4948.
