Get ready, Austin. The red light cameras are coming soon.
Red-light cameras at some of the city's busiest intersections will begin helping enforce traffic laws beginning May 23, when more motorists are on the road for Memorial Day weekend, Austin officials said Monday.
The first camera will be at the intersection of 11th Street and the northbound frontage road of Interstate 35, but crews will continue installing the cameras at eight other intersections across Austin during the next several weeks.
Authorities said there will not be a warning period once a camera is at an intersection. They have instead developed public service announcements to warn motorists against running red lights. The announcements are being distributed to local media outlets.
