31 traffic collisions in the past two years at this intersection and what do you get? A new Photo Red Light (PRL) system which will activate this morning at 7:30 a.m. with Councilwoman Wendy Greuel and the LAPD. Across the city, the threat of a $381 ticket has reduced the collision rate by an average of 10-15% at PRL intersections. 12 more intersections in the city are slated to receive this technology with today's addition making the count 20 citywide.
