Florida state to change red light camera operation

Governor Rick Scott is now forcing cities across the state to change how they operate these red light cameras.

Scott signed house bill 7125 Tuesday and starting next month drivers will now be allowed to pay fines up to 60 days instead of the 30 days now in place.

With new Florida Department of Transportation standards, cities will also have to make sure that by the end of the year yellow lights last for at least a second a half.  DOT yellow light timing changes must be completed by December 31, 2013.

Tallahassee city leaders say yellow lights here are no shorter than 3 seconds.
