HB 6001 to repeal red light cameras will be heard in the House Appropriations Committee Tuesday October 10th.
Red Light Cameras have become a public hazard. Numerous studies show increased accidents at red light camera intersections proving what we always knew, that Red Light Cameras were not about safety and were all about revenue.
The city of Jacksonville is ending their use of red light cameras. The reason why is that they know what we have been saying for years, that red light cameras increase accidents, not prevent them. Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams has realized this as he announced the end of cameras in Jacksonville;
“We know through data now that we don’t reduce crashes with red light cameras, we know that. And we’ve got enough of a snapshot of data to say that’s not happening. The program will go away, because the safety benefits just aren’t there.”
HB 6001 will repeal the use of red light cameras.
HB 6001 will be heard in the House Appropriations Committee Tuesday October 10th, 2017 at 3:00 PM.
