Efforts to repeal red light cameras
Efforts to repeal red light cameras will be on the front burner when state lawmakers begin their annual legislative session next week
Florida's two most powerful lawmakers, the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate, both support ending red light cameras.
But their power has limits.
That is in part because of a recent legislative report.
It found that there were 1186 more crashes at red light intersections after the cameras went up but 18 fewer people died.
Perhaps an even bigger obstacle to repeal, the cameras produced 118 million in revenue last year split almost evenly between the state and local governments.
