Police seek use of red light cameras

Sarasota Police Chief Peter Abbott will ask the City Commission at tonight’s commission meeting to approve an ordinance that would make running red lights a civil violation and allow police to enforce that law with traffic cameras.

Although running a red light is already illegal, the only way a violator can currently be ticketed is if an officer witnesses an infraction. A bill in the Legislature that would have legalized red-light cameras statewide died in May.
