More Cameras Added To Longview Intersections

       Drivers take note, more surveillance cameras have been added to catch red light runners in Longview. The city has placed an additional camera at the Loop 281-4th Street intersection and another at a new location on Mobberly and Cotton Street. Police say the new cameras have already been useful in freeing up patrol officers for other duties, and assisting in slowing traffic down at what officers say are the busiest locations around Longview.

      Since the camera project installation, the city has mailed out more than 250 notices of violations.

The city will assess how successful the project has been after 5 to 6 months of operation.
