Well the brilliant powers that be here in Lakeland just authorized the installation of an additional 10 cameras in the city limits. They will go active sometime in the summer.

A bit of great news regarding red light cameras in Southwest Florida Naples Region. Collier currently has cameras at 19 approaches and 10 intersections throughout the Naples area.
The county monitors left turn and straight movements, but not right turns. In 2012, ATS issued 10,834 violations, an average of 903 per month.
Just two years after state lawmakers passed a law that allowed the use of red light cameras on Florida streets, a House committee reversed course and approved a bill that would banish them.
The House Economic Affairs Committee narrowly approved HB 4011 by a vote 10-8, underscoring just how divisive the public safety program is.
Just read a recent article that some red light camera tickets might have to be invalidated due to issues concerning the duration of the yellow lights at the affected intersections. Apparently, the yellow duration was shorter than the local requirements specified.
Just something to take a look at if you receive one of these tickets in the mail.
Usually, I do not find that thenewspaper.com publishes credible articles, but this one seems to bear following.
The Wall Street Journal has published an article that looks at the question of red light cameras in a more balanced manner than many. Among the points they raise are:
"As red-light cameras have proliferated around the U.S. over the past two decades to hundreds of cities and towns, there is one troubling detail: They don't always make traffic intersections safer."
Unbelievable! Check this out.

Drivers had enough time to avoid running red light, judge says
I've noticed a camera listed in the Red Light Camera Intersection file ever since I joined this site. I was pretty sure there was not an active camera at this location (County Line Rd and Ewell Rd) and today I finally had a chance to inspect it for certain.
The intersection has no cameras and should be deleted from the camera file.
Jacksonville Florida is starting to roll out red light cameras.
Official details are posted by the Sheriff's office at this page:
Installation of the first of 25 cameras is underway at Southside Blvd & Baymeadows Rd.
Cameras are also approved for these intersections:

I like how the mayor claims it's not about revenue. The whole article is about how they need more money.

The teaser was that they were going to scrap the cameras.
You had to stay up and watch the news to find out they plan to replace them. WHAT A BUMMER !
There sure is a high rate of dismissal, though, when challenged.
