Debate continues over red light cameras on Florida’s Suncoast

But many cities across the state including Bradenton have decided to stop using the cameras. Bradenton’s City Administrator Carl Callahan says it’s because of the uncertainty of the camera’s future at the state level. “The bulk of the issue was that when we were making that decision, the state legislature was really pushing and pulling as to which way they wanted to go with legislation,” said Callahan. “If it looked like they wanted to try to outlaw it completely then we didn’t want to buck that.”
