Red Light Enforcement Cameras

Where are red light cameras located in Libertyville?

- Westbound Peterson Road (Route 137) at Butterfield Road

- Northbound US 45 at Peterson Road

Why did I get this citation?


A vehicle registered or leased to you was photographed by an automatic camera connected to a traffic signal. These cameras are only active when the light is red. Vehicles crossing the stop bar after the light turns red are detected automatically and three photographs and video are taken.


Superimposed on each photograph is the date, time, location, and how long into the red signal the violation occurred.

Is this citation considered a traffic ticket?


No, this citation is not considered a moving violation. It is a civil citation holding the registered owner or lessee responsible for the violation (similar to a parking ticket).

These violations are NOT reported to the Secretary of State and do not affect your driving record, unless you accrue 5 or more unpaid citations.

These violations are not reported to insurance companies.

Can I contest this violation?


Yes, you may request an Administrative Hearing by mail or online. Failure to pay the civil penalty or to contest liability in a timely manner is an admission of liability and may result in a suspension of the driving privileges of the registered owner of the vehicle.

Note: You will need the citation number and PIN located on the written notice mailed to you.

Are you issuing citations for not stopping while making a right turn on red?


Not at this time. While the Illinois vehicle code requires drivers to come to a complete stop before making a right turn on red, we have not seen a significant number of crashes caused by this violation. We will continue to monitor our crash statistics and evaluate the need on a regular basis.
