Tampa Auto Accident Attorneys Address the Pros and Cons of Red Light Cameras
The auto accident attorneys at Clark & Martino, P.A. in Tampa have witnessed many controversial traffic laws over the years. But one recent state law has turned out to be especially polarizing – that which allows municipalities to operate “red light cameras” within city boundaries. Designed to deter motorists from running red lights, the red light cameras that have sprung up in cities around the state have been both praised and vilified by Florida residents. Some point to statistics as evidence that red light cameras save lives; others say that red light cameras are nothing more than a pretext for generating revenue, and that studies have been inconclusive as to their effectiveness. Love them or hate them, red light cameras are likely here to stay, and will – like the now-ubiquitous red stop sign – eventually become an accepted tool of traffic safety.
