Bill to Use Cameras to Catch Red Light Runners

February 21st, 2008 by flanews

A proposed bill would set standards for cities to snap pictures of cars running run red lights. The cameras would be put at dangerous intersections. If the camera nabbed a picture of your license plate, you could receive a 125 dollar ticket in the mail. The idea for the legislation came after a wreck claimed the life of Mark Wendell. Wendell died after a car ran a red light and smashed into his vehicle in 2003. Wendell’s wife Melisa has been pushing the red light law ever since her husband’s death.

“Do I think it’s going to stop every single person from running a red light? Absolutely not, but if it can stop as many people as possible or curve those bad behaviors, I think it’s my responsible to do that,” said Wendell.

A committee voted to approve the bill. Wendell’s hoping to get the Red Light Law in front of lawmakers in March.
