It's been a year since the Grand Junction Police Department formed its Traffic Unit. In that time they've written more than 4200 tickets, and now
now the unit is cracking down on red light violators.
It's a law all drivers know; red means stop, and green means go. But that doesn't stop people from trying to push the limits. Officers with the Traffic Unit say they've noticed more and more people running red lights, and they're taking a zero tolerance to violations.
This month the Traffic Unit focused on this intersection at Highway 6&50 and Rimrock Drive. In just seven hours they wrote a total of 43 red light violations.
Red light violations cost drivers a $75 ticket and result in four points against their driver's license.
