Be sure to brake.
A state Senate bill that would have reduced red-light camera fines and given violators more time to pay was voted down Thursday, March 21.
If approved, the bill would have reduced fines from $158 to $100 and given violators 90 days to respond rather than the current 30 days.
The Florida Senate Transportation Committee on Thursday approved an amendment by Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth instead. It kept the fines at $158 and the 30-day response time.
In January, the city of Sarasota added three additional red-light cameras to busy Sarasota intersections, increasing the total number of the high-resolution, high-speed cameras to 10 citywide.
