No More Red Light Cameras? Here's What Beach Residents Are Saying
As the Florida House of Representatives considers outlawing red light cameras around the state, here's what some Patch readers had to say on the subject.
Since we told you last week about a bill under consideration by the Florida House of Representatives that would strike down the use of red light cameras, Patch readers have had plenty to say on the topic.
Our story, Red Light Cameras: Should They Stay or Go?, received more than 120 comments as of Tuesday night. Here's what one Pinellas Beaches Patch reader had to say:
Sophia: "The owner of the camera gets $50 for every ticket I read. Hum. People don't have an extra $158.00 cruel. Try making the Yellow light longer not a split second."
Mary Lou Murphy, on the Pinellas Beaches Patch Facebook page: "ABSOLUTELY ! My Northern visitors say, " gee, no-one who drives here pays attention to rules of the road " Stats in Florida are, " we are 2x as likely to die from vehicular accident"
Do you agree? Should red light cameras be banned in Florida? Why or why not? Share your thoughts in the comments section below to continue the conversation.
