ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Orange County's effort to add more red-light cameras is right on schedule.
Orange County officials released new data that shows they're doing exactly what they expected Monday
The county's numbers show the cameras are working so well at reducing crashes and preventing drivers from running red lights that the county is now moving forward with adding 40 more.
Engineers studied the 10 locations over the last two years and found the average red light violations decreased by 25 percent, the number of crashes went down by 14 percent and the crash rates also dropped by 11 percent.
The new cameras are part of the $16 million plan Orange County Commissioners signed off on to add a total of 80 cameras over the next two years.

"It's too many, really. At the bad intersections I can understand, but just putting them everywhere is getting ridiculous,"
Leaders said the first seven cameras will be up by December.
