Thursday is the last day for a warning grace period for red light cameras at two Jacksonville intersections.

Notice of violations will start being issued Friday for Southside Boulevard at Touchton Road southbound, and Baymeadows Road at Southside Boulevard eastbound and westbound.

Current updates on the other intersections are listed here.

In all, there will be 25 cameras that will be used to catch red light runners at 18 intersections in the River City.

The owners of cars caught running red lights at the intersections will be issued a fine of $158, no matter who is driving. No points will be added to the driver's license.

If the fine goes unpaid for 30 days or more, it becomes a citation, or an official ticket with a $274 fine and points on the driver's license.

The city projects the cameras will generate $1.5 million that will go back into its general fund.
