A local news station called us yesterday to report on the red light camera issue and ran a piece on a specific violation. I've included the segment below.
For the moment, let's set aside our biases for or against red light cameras and simply look at the facts of this case. Better yet, let's go to the tape of the violation. As you watch it, note that the vehicle in question is the second car on the tape, not the first.
The person interviewed said he came to a stop. The reporter used the term, "complete stop." When asked, the reporter said he had not viewed the video. You make the call.
When I hear concerns about unjust enforcement, I always encourage people to prepare a defense and take advantage of our system of due process in this great country. The beauty of the red light camera technology is that there is plenty of information available, if one simply takes the time to be informed.
Florida law requires a driver to come to a complete stop (the wheels must stop turning) before making a right turn on red. Let's be careful out there.
