Farragut’s Traffic Enforcement Program 2010 fourth quarter statistics released


Town of Farragut announces the following statistics for the 2010 fourth quarter enforcement period of Oct. 1 through Dec. 31 for its Traffic Enforcement Program (red light violations).

Following are the highlights from this period:

• 3,807 incidents were recorded.

• 1,300 incidents were rejected by the reviewing officer.

• 467 incidents were not processed by Redflex due to technical issues or lack of information.

• 2,040 citations were issued.

The number of incidents and citations is down dramatically from the beginning of 2010. Following is an overview of the number of incidents and citations for each quarter in 2010:

• First quarter: 7,168 incidents; 3,520 citations

• Second quarter: 7,213 incidents; 3,878 citations

• Third quarter: 4,608 incidents; 2,154 citations

• Fourth quarter: 3,807 incidents; 2,040 citations

Resurfacing on Kingston Pike during the third quarter affected the number of incidents and citations at two of the three monitored intersections.


During the fourth quarter, the Traffic Enforcement Program averaged more than 22 citations per day, which averages to less than eight citations daily at each of the three monitored intersections. Each violation carries a maximum fine of $50.

The annual verification of the caution/yellow light timing at Farragut’s three monitored intersections and the initial verification of the planned fourth intersection (Campbell Station Road and Parkside Drive/

Grigsby Chapel Road) was completed Jan. 21. The verification showed the minimum caution/yellow light is four seconds in duration at each of the four intersections. The camera at the intersection of Campbell Station Road and Parkside Drive/Grigsby Chapel Road should be operational between the end of February and mid-March and will begin with a 30-day warning period, as with the previous three intersections.
