    A fourth red light camera installed in Jersey City has been activated to take video and photos of red-light violators.

    The red light camera at the intersection of Sip Avenue and Route 1 & 9/440 was activated at midnight last Thursday, Jan. 5. It is currently in a trial phase, scheduled to end at 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 3. 

    During the "warning period," drivers who run the red light will receive a written warning in the mail. After 12 a.m. Feb 4, drivers cited for running the red light will receive an $85 citation.

    There are other red light cameras at three other intersections in the city, including John F. Kennedy Boulevard at Communipaw Avenue, Jersey Avenue at 18th Street, Montgomery and Merseles streets, and Newark and Tonelle avenues.

    City officials said red light cameras have already recorded over 16,000 violations at two locations since April 2011.
