The City of Rockville has installed a new camera to catch drivers violating red-light laws.

The new camera is at the intersection of Seven Locks Road and Fortune Terrace, southbound. Right now, a grace period is in effect, which means no tickets will be issued through June 14, according to a city news release.

Starting June 15, drivers who run red lights or make a right turn on red without first coming to a complete stop will receive a $75 citation for each violation.

Rockville has seen a spike in red-light camera tickets and revenue since last August, when it started swapping out its old cameras with ones that could capture violations by people who do not stop completely before turning right on red.

The city recently installed red-light cameras at the intersections of North Washington Street and Middle Lane, Park Road and North Stonestreet Avenue, and Gaither Road and Redland Boulevard.
