FLORIDA (WKMG) – Over the last decade, millions of drivers in Central Florida have traveled through an intersection that has a red-light camera, but those cameras — and the $158 tickets that sometimes follow — could go dark in the Sunshine State.
Rep. Anthony Sabatini, R-Howey-in-the-Hills, has proposed a new bill that would no longer allow any municipalities in Florida to operate the cameras.
The law implementing the cameras was passed with the promise of reducing wrecks at intersections, but according to a newly released report, crashes have actually increased since it went into effect.
Sabatini told News 6 anchor Justin Warmoth on “The Weekly on ClickOrlando.com” that he believes the cameras are only used as a money grabber for local government.
