The red light cameras are to be maintained by American Traffic Solutions(ATS) and the violations are reviewed by the City of St Petersburg Police Department. The contract with ATS was approved by the City of St Petersburg City Council in April 2011. The cameras are scheduled to go live September 15, 2011 issuing warnings for 45 days and then they started issuing official civil citations on October 29, 2011. The City of St Petersburg will give no grace period(time between when the light turns red and when they might issue a citation), meaning that if you cross the stop line 0.01 seconds after the light turns red you will get a citation.
