Orlando Red Light Accident Lawyer | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
In a move fully endorsed by Orlando personal injury attorneys and others throughout the area, Kissimmee has announced that the city will install red light cameras at ten of its busiest intersections this summer. The city will be the first city in Osceola County to install the life-saving cameras, and many hope that other Central Florida cities will also have red light cameras installed soon. The city plans to have the cameras in place and issuing tickets to red light runners by mid-August. The move follows other cities in Central Florida that have taken this step to protect everyone at busy intersections. Nearby Longwood is planning to install four cameras soon, Winter Park currently has two in place and Apopka has six. Orlando leads the way with 17 red light cameras located at some of the region’s busiest and most dangerous intersections.
Longwood city officials have voted to delay a decision on installing four red light cameras until July 18. The vote came after Deputy Mayor Bob Cortes requested that city commissioners delay making a decision on the four planned photo-enforcement devices. Cortes voiced his concern regarding a proposed contract that Longwood would have to sign with Sensys America, a red light camera manufacturer. He said that the city would have to pay a $40,000 early termination fee for each camera installed inside the city limits as his primary reason for caution.
