Red Light Camera Repeal to be voted on by the full House!

HB 4027 will repeal the use of traffic infraction devices, including the use of red light cameras. We know that red light cameras are used only to increase revenue for local governments. They are not there to increase public safety. Notoriously, cities that lose money on the traffic infraction detectors invariably cancel their contracts and stop using them.

It is blatantly evident that red light cameras are solely revenue generation tools at the expense of public safety. Instead of increasing the duration of yellow lights at traffic intersections, which has proved to save lives, the Florida Department of Transportation deliberately changed the state policy to reduce yellow light intervals to below federal recommendations. This substantially increased revenue from violations while increasing the risk to public safety. To make matters worse, Red Flex Traffic Solutions corporate officers have even been arrested and convicted for bribing local government officials to support installation of red light cameras.

Even though we have an uphill battle in the Senate, it is crucial that we pass HB 4027 out of the House. By passing HB 4027 we can keep the possibility of the Senate taking up HB 4027. You can help put an end to the corruption, pay-offs and extortion surrounding the use of red light cameras.

HB 4027 is on the House Special Order Calendar for Friday, March 4th, 2016.

    There is a VERY real chance to end the money grab scam of red light cameras statewide. Florida residents need to call their state Representatives to politely but clearly insist that House Bills HB4027 to ban red light cameras passes the full House on the way to become law. Let each official know you find the cameras to be unacceptable and that complete removal is the only acceptable solution. Contact information:
