TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - New bills have been filed in Tallahassee that would regulate or remove red light cameras in Florida.
Prominent among the new bills is one filed in the Florida Senate, which would reduce fines and penalties for tickets issued due to red light camera violations.
The 12-page bill would reduce fines to $50 and for the first offense would give drivers a chance to attend driver-improvement courses instead of having to pay.
It would also prohibit drivers from having their licenses suspended or license plate withheld if they don’t pay the fine.
