Longview police began issuing $124 tickets Monday for red-light runners captured by the city's red-light cameras.
Eight cameras are posted at the following intersections, which are posted with warning signs to notify people they're monitored.
• Eastbound and westbound on Ocean Beach Highway at 15th Avenue

The cameras operate 24 hours a day and capture still images and video of every vehicle that runs a red light. Citations are issued to the vehicle's registered owner.
