2010 Legislature: Red-Light Cameras, Texting Ban
State lawmakers are considering two bills this session they hope will make Florida’s roads safer. One would ban texting behind the wheel, making it a secondary offense (which means you have to be pulled over for something else first). We’ll look at the details of the bill. Another proposal would create uniform standards for red-light cameras and clarify state law to allow local governments to fine red-light runners based on pictures taken by the cameras. We’ll talk about the bill and weigh the effectiveness of the cameras at making intersections safer.
