FRISCO - The city of Frisco issued warning letters to 779 people during a monthlong trial period for red-light cameras, police officials said Tuesday.

The trial period for cameras at two intersections ended at midnight Saturday. Now, the city has begun issuing real citations and collecting fines.

Any new notices to red-light runners at Dallas Parkway's intersections with Main Street and Gaylord Parkway will carry a civil fine of $75 for the first or second offense. A $200 fine will be imposed for each additional offense in a 12-month period.

"Seven hundred and seventy-nine in one month," police Sgt. Gina McFarlin said. "That's despite all the publicity and the warnings. That's a ton. And we're more than a little concerned about that."

"That's on hold right now," Sgt. McFarlin said. The third set of cameras can't be installed until a waterline at the intersection has been moved, she said. No completion date has been announced.

Red-light runners will receive bills in the mail that include dated and timed photographs of their violations, police said. The civil fines are not reported to insurance companies, they said.

Frisco's cameras were installed by Redflex Traffic Systems of Scottsdale, Ariz. The company is a part of Redflex Holdings Group of South Melbourne, Australia.
