Santa Fe Traffic Operations Program S.T.O.P.
In 2009, the Santa Fe officials implemented a traffic enforcement program to help combat the serious problem of red-light violations and safety concerns pertaining to speeding. In turn, the Santa Fe Traffic Operations Program, "(S.T.O.P.)" was implemented with the help of Redflex Systems, Inc. Since then, there has been only mobile speed vans parked in high safety concern areas and side streets for residents. The S.T.O.P. program emphasis is on safety and is not viewed as a money making program

Automated Traffic Enforcement
In 2008, the city of Santa Fe began researching the utilization of automated traffic enforcement to reduce crashes at the four highest crash intersections in the city:
Cerrillos / St. Michael's Drive
- Cerrillos / St. Francis Drive
- Cerrillos / Richards Avenue
- Cerrillos / Zafarano Drive
All cameras at these intersections can detect right turn on red, left turn on red, straight through on red, and speeding violations.
The city uses the services of Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc.
Redflex provides and installs the camera equipment and software for the automated traffic enforcement program. The city manages and controls the program, including the site selection process. Automated traffic enforcement programs using red-light cameras have proven to be an effective tool in reducing red-light incidents and crashes caused by red-light violations.
Fixed Detection Systems
Four fixed automated traffic enforcement cameras are in operation as indicated above. These fixed locations are chosen by police primarily based on collision history. Once an automated traffic enforcement camera is fully operational, the city pays a monthly rental fee per location. All automated traffic enforcement vans located throughout the city capture not only red-light violations but speeding violations as well.
