Red Light Photo Enforcement

Red Light Cameras
Red light camera locations in Fox Lake are as follows:
Corners of Route 12 and Route 134 (Big Hollow Rd)

Since so many accidents occur as a result of running red lights, the Village of Fox Lake installed cameras at signalized intersections around our community to help ensure the safety of motorists, pedestrians and cyclists. This program is known as the Fox Lake Red Light Photo Enforcement Program.

The Fox Lake Red Light Photo Enforcement Program uses automated camera systems and sensors to detect red light violations.  A red light violation consists of vehicles illegally entering the intersection during the red light phase.  Vehicles positioned behind the legal stop line after the light turns red and entering the intersection in a continuous motion will cause the camera to automatically record the violation.  On each image of the violation are the date, time and location where the violation occurred.

The citation is issued to the registered owner of the vehicle, no matter who is driving.

Illinois State law states that it is permissible to make a right hand turn on red, only after coming to a complete stop. (no roll throughs).
