Take action to stop the use of these unconstitutional devices in the sunshine state
The push for automated enforcement devices (red light cameras) has been disguised as a safety measure. The law in Florida is a direct assault on liberty, as it does things like transfer the presumption of guilt onto the vehicle owner and restricts their ability to go to court (due process).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.
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.
