Red Light Cameras

Post Date:02/11/2010
This spring, motorists who travel some of Fort Lauderdale's busiest intersections should be aware that cameras are being installed as part of the City's effort to use technology to make our streets safer.

During a six-year period, between 2004 and 2009, traffic crashes occurring at signal controlled intersections in the City of Fort Lauderdale resulted in 26 fatalities. Red-light accidents often are among the worst because they generally involve vehicles crashing directly into the driver or passenger side of another vehicle at high speeds.

The City's goal is to deter red-light runners and prevent collisions resulting from these violations. Violators face a $125 fine for each offense.

Photo enforcement cameras, operating 24-hours a day, will capture still images and video of red-light runners. Violators will receive citations via first-class mail.
