LOS ANGELES Los Angeles' $15 million high-tech camera system designed to catch red-light runners let four in 10 violators off the hook last year because the drivers couldn't be identified, according to police data.

While officials had hoped the cameras would result in a citation rate as high as 80percent, critics question the gap and note that the project is now nearly five months behind schedule with only 26 of 32 cameras in place.
