Red Light Camera at Intersection of Valley View St and Chapman Ave in Garden Grove, CA - south bound camera pictureThe city of Garden Grove contracts with the private company Redflex Traffic Systems to operate a red light camera system at the Valley View St and Chapman Ave intersection. There are two cameras located at the intersection of Valley View St and Chapman Ave, one monitoring northbound traffic on Valley View, and another monitoring southbound.

The speed limit at this intersection is 45 mph, which means the CA Vehicle Code and the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices requires that each yellow light must be at least a minimum of 4.2 seconds in duration for through traffic. For protected left or right hand turns, the yellow must be a minimum of 3.0 seconds

Both the northbound and southbound cameras each capture approximately 30-50 incidents per month, from which an average of about 20-40 tickets are issued. The cameras only monitor straight through traffic.

Overall, the city of Garden Grove has 14 red light camera approaches at eight different intersections within the city limits. The city issues roughly 600-800 red light camera tickets per month, and the number of tickets issued per year is approximately 7,700.

UPDATE (2107) This intersection has been operational since the original contract was signed with Redflex in 2001. A four year extension of the contract was signed in July of 2017, meaning the cameras at this intersection are likely to remain in place until at least 2021. The city pays between $2,800 to $2,900 per approach per month for 11 operation approaches, which equates to nearly $400,000 a year.
