Red Light Cameras
Rejecting arguments by the city of Aventura, the Florida Supreme Court has refused to reconsider a June ruling which sided with drivers who challenged the local red-light camera ordinances in Aventura and Orlando.
Earlier this year in a CBS4 investigation, we showed you how drivers are beating red light camera tickets, while others are being taken for a ride. In this report, CBS4’s David Sutta continues his investigation on how cities may be setting you up to lose in what some are calling kangaroo courts. It’s a story that may leave you wondering…is this legal?
The Florida Supreme Court has ruled all red light cameras installed by cities before 2010 were illegal and cities, like Aventura, may now have to return all those fines back to drivers.
If you were caught on camera running a red light and fined four years ago, you may be getting some money back.
Whether you are in favor of them or not, more and more red light cameras are going up in South Florida. For cities, the state and even the camera manufactures, the record number of cameras has turned into record profits. South Florida’s cameras are the most lucrative in the state. In a CBS4 investigation we learned some drivers are being taken for a ride.
A measure to repeal the state’s red-light traffic camera law will be pushed forward by lawmakers using a study from the Legislature’s non-partisan policy office to support the effort.
New red light cameras would no longer be allowed under a wide-ranging transportation proposal that received the go-ahead Thursday from a House subcommittee.
In a legal battle that could have implications for other communities, the Florida Supreme Court heard arguments Thursday about whether Orlando and Aventura violated state law in approving red-light camera programs.
Since its inception, red light cameras have been a hot topic among politicians and drivers all across the state of Florida. Now, a House Republican has filed a bill that would repeal the state laws that authorized the red light cameras at intersections across the state.
Red light cameras are coming back to Miami, now that city commissioners have decided to handle appeals. That is creating controversy over what happens if you fight a ticket and lose.
