Florida faces own red-light quandaries

Don’t forget, we’re not the only state where traffic-enforcement cameras have brewed controversy.

I get a slew of links in my email every week about some such town or another announcing that cameras are coming, that they’re going to court, or other developments.

One recent link was of particular interest, and one that several readers sent along: According to The Orlando Sentinel, cities in Florida could have to pay back collected fines if the cameras are ruled illegal there, due to the timing of installation compared to legislative approval of the devices. (For what it is worth, the cameras arrived in Lynnwood and other Washington cities after the path was cleared by state lawmakers).

You can read the whole story from Florida here: “Millions in red-light camera fines could be returned.”
