Red Light, Yellow Light, Green Light

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

LAist knows that most Angelenos have a need for speed, but don't usually have a bankbook to handle the high-priced photo-enforced fines.

Thankfully, Photozones allows Angelenos the ability to search and log each and every photo-enforced red light location across all of the Southland. With over 119 results in the LA area, drivers with a heavy-foot will have no worries knowing which red lights are safe to go through and which red lights might break the bank.

The only problem? Widespread panic. For once you know which lights have the dreaded photoboxes, you'll soon find yourself screeching to a halt at intersections with the devilish technology. From Olympic & Spaulding in Beverly Hills to Roscoe & DeSoto in Canoga Park to Slauson & Buckingham in Culver City -- knowing where they are is half the battle. Knowing when a yellow light is just too yellow to permit fully-legal intersection crossture -- well, that'll be up to you.
