Red light cameras on Parkside?


City Council, the legislative body for the City of Knoxville, met at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8, (after farragutpress deadline) in the Main Assembly Room of the City County Building to consider a resolution authorizing Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam to execute an agreement with Redflex Traffic systems, Inc. for an automated red light enforcement system to monitor, identify and enforce red light violations for certain intersections located within the City of Knoxville. The request was made by the Knoxville Police Department. KPD also provided the City with a list of the top 25 intersections for crashes to be used in determining the location of these lights if the resolution passes. Among those intersections are Kingston Pike at Morrell, Cedar Bluff at Peters, Kingston Pike at Gallaher View, Kingston Pike at Cedar Bluff, I-40 at Cedar Bluff, Parkside at Lovell, Kingston Pike at Peters and I-40 at Lovell, all in West Knoxville. It has not been determined if Knox County will follow suit if the resolution passes.
