Last Tuesday, Pinecrest Council members voted to use red light cameras at four intersections on US-1. The cameras will be in the northbound lanes on US-1 and SW 88 St, SW 112 St, SW 128 St and Daytran Drive. A $158 fine will be issued by mail to violators.
The program will be put into effect only if it passes a final approval at a second meeting slated for September. The intention is to make the City safer by deterring people from running red lights, knowing they can be caught even without an officer to stop them at that moment. Stay tuned to see if this goes into effect.
