Traffic Camera Safety Program
The City of New Orleans operates the Traffic Camera Safety Program to deter red light violations, reduce speeding violations, increase traffic situational awareness and reduce collision severity.
The 2017 budget includes expanding the program to include 45 permanently Fixed Traffic Safety Cameras and 10 Mobile Traffic Safety Camera Units. View a PDF of the map showing existing and proposed locations here.
Over 80 percent of individuals who receive a traffic safety camera citation and pay it do not get another citation. Only 21 of the City’s 134 schools (16 percent) are covered by a traffic safety camera. The City receives daily requests to install new traffic safety cameras from residents and neighborhoods in response to speeding.

Mobile Traffic Units are deployed at locations throughout the City to supplement and support traffic enforcement by the NOPD.
The vehicles are wrapped and look similar to NOPD vehicles.
