Beverly Hills is installing seven brand new red light cameras, meaning that they'll have 15 of the hated devices by June 15.Beverly Hills shut off their red light cameras in January, but is not only preparing to turn them back on, but to get some more, Curbed LA reports. The seven new cameras will bring the total up to 15, with implementation at nine intersections.

Lt. Mike Foxen of BHPD said that the cameras were initially supposed to get turned back on in February, but there were delays, according to the Beverly Hills Courier.

Beverly Hills will be complying with new state regulations that call for longer yellow lights, which will give drivers more time to stop.

The cameras will be turned on and installed in June. By June 1, expect red light cameras at Wilshire/Whittier; Olympic/Doheny; Olympic/Roxbury; Olympic/Spaulding; and Sunset/Hillcrest. By June 15, expect them at Beverly Drive/Wilshire; Santa Monica/Crescent; Benedict Canyon/Sunset; and Crescent/Sunset. For the first month after implementation, drivers will receive a warning letter.
