Drivers in Albemarle County can expect to see another red light camera. The first one was installed in 2010 at Rio Road and Route 29.
Wednesday, the Albemarle Board of Supervisors will receive more information about expanding the county's Photosafe Program to the intersection of Route 20 and Route 250.
In 2009 the Albemarle County Police Department said there were 25 crashes at the Route 20 and Route 250 intersection, and 27 in 2010. So far this year there have already been 18 accidents.
Supervisor Ken Boyd says more red light cameras could be placed at other stop lights in the future.
"What we're allowed to do, with our population, up to 10 lights. I don't think we'll get to that many of them, but we certainly want to try and duplicate the success at Route 20 and 250," Boyd said.
The new red light camera at Route 20 and Route 250 could be installed in the next four to six months.
Apart from safety, the red light cameras also generate much needed revenue for the county. From July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012, the Photosafe Program generated a net revenue of more than $90,000 for Albemarle County.
