The cameras catching people who run red lights at five Davenport intersections are catching more and more people. The cameras have been up since August, and more than two-thousand vehicles have been caught on tape, running a red light. About 13-hundred tickets have been issued, and Davenport police sergeant Joe Blake says that’s because officers are reviewing every photo. “The rule of thumb is would (the officer) make that stop if he was out in a squad car and observed that violation,” Blake says. Some people have gotten two or three tickets after being caught on camera running a red light, and Blake says that’s surprising because the intersections are clearly marked. One person earned two tickets in just one hour. “Apparently people aren’t paying attention to the signs,” Blake says.
