The Electronic Red Light Safety Program (ERLSP) began operations on February 1, 2004 with the activation of a camera located at the intersection of Route 13 and Webbs Lane in Dover.

In 2001, Senate Bill 262 legislated that 20 individual locations across the state could be equipped with cameras for the video enforcement of red light running violations. The specific locations included six cameras in Dover, two in Newark, one each in Seaford and Elsmere, and 10 others in unincorporated areas of the state.

Section 98 of the Fiscal Year 2010 Bond Bill (Senate Bill 155) of the 145th General Assembly contains the authorizing language to continue DelDOT's Electronic Red Light Safety Program on an open-ended basis. Ten new camera locations have been determined and are expected to be operational by summer 2010. They include one additional location in Kent County, seven in New Castle County, and two in Sussex County.

Under the program, the fine for a violation is $137.50 and is sent to the registered owner of the vehicle. Late charges can apply. Effective August 2015, the fines are as follows:

  • Violation $137.50
  • 30-days late: $147.50
  • 60 days late: $157.50
  • 90 days late: $167.50

Unlike traditional violations cited by a police officer, the camera violations are considered a civil offense not a criminal one. Because of this, the violation and fine will not impact a motorist's insurance rate or accumulate points on their driving record.
