No Grace Period For Brooksville Red Light Runners

Sure thing

The city knows a sure thing when it sees it!

Starting March

Thanks for the tip. It looks like the city will be installing cameras at 20 intersections in March 2012.

We'll add these to the camera files as the installations are confirmed.

Sure they do. !

They have from now until March for a grace period. ,

No Grace

I was wondering why they turned off the cameras in the first place. I should have known it would be more of the same. People getting tickets for right turns on red. They'll lose $1,000,000.00 in revenue? OH NO!

Exactly right. When Target opens a new store, is there a grace period for shoplifting?

That makes no sense. There really are grace periods for red light cameras. In this instance, there might be some confusion to drivers that "don't get the memo" that the cameras are back on. Since most of the violations are right turns on red, it sounds like Brooksville wants to get as many $158 fines as it can. All in the interest of $afety.

Partially agree ...

It shouldn't really matter, though, right? The violation is running the light, it's only a matter of whether or how long they can do it with impunity rather than a safetu one.

I do, however, agree that the relative rate of right turn on red violations is disturbing and, seemingly, indicative of a profit motive.
