City of Fairfax Police Sgt. Dan Grimm says beginning Friday, July 1, the cameras will issue warnings only. Beginning Aug. 1, citations carrying a $50 will be sent for individuals running a red.

Grimm says multiple cameras will monitor the intersections. Multiple people, including two city police officers, will personally review the evidence.

The citation, which will include two still photographs and a 12-second video of the alleged violation, will be sent to the car's registered owner. If the registered owner wasn't driving at the time of the violation, he or she can sign a sworn affidavit stating so, and the citation will be nullified.
