Some lawmakers second thinking red light cameras

FLORIDA   --  Some Florida lawmakers think red light cameras aren't such a good idea, and they want them taken down.
A south Florida representative has filed a bill that would repeal the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act of 2010.
   
Here locally, red light cameras in Gulf breeze have caused a lot of controversy since they first went up.
   
If you're caught going through a red light, it will cost you 158 dollars.
One driver we talked to says the cameras cause a dangerous situation for drivers.

"Usually when it turns yellow you have time to go through which could cause someone to hit you behind you"

Representative Mike Hill says he does *not support red light cameras.
He says they are designed to make money, not to keep drivers safe.
   
The proposed bill will be reviewed by the transportation committee.
