Starting Monday, if you're eastbound on McDowell Road waiting to turn left to northbound Scottsdale Road, that turn will be monitored by the city's latest photo-enforcement camera.

The city will begin issuing citations via its third left-turn arrow location at that intersection, city officials announced.

The other two sites are at 90th Street and Shea Boulevard, which was activated Aug. 1, and at Scottsdale Road and Shea, which was switched on Oct. 1.

City officials said they will introduce left-turn cameras at three more intersections.

All six intersections currently have cameras for through traffic. Each camera flashes vehicles and their license plates that run red lights or speed through the interesections at 11 mph or more above the limit.

A diagram showing at what point a vehicle would be in violation of the ordinance may be seen on the city's Web site,
