Florida Lawmaker Wants to Eliminate Red Light Cameras for Good

State Rep. Anthony Sabatini, R–Howey in the Hills, has filed a bill that would get rid of red-light cameras in Florida for good.

Sabatini’s proposal would repeal the law allowing red-light cameras passed by the Legislature in 2010.

“They are just a taxpayer fraud scheme. They are just a way for local governments to pad their pockets and raise more revenues,” Sabatini told Florida Daily, adding that his research shows that the Department of Transportation cannot prove red-light cameras make intersections safer.
