As the red light camera debate continues in Florida. a recent report from 10 Investigates revealed that in Manatee County officials are strategically installing red light cameras at specific intersections based upon the ability to generate revenue.
According to the report, of the 10 most dangerous intersections, only one is actually monitored by a red light camera. Instead, last summer Manatee County began issue citations for rolling right hand turns and the county’s profits, which were previously low, began to skyrocket.

According to 10 Investigates, attempts to fight the tickets have been mostly unsuccessful. Since the hearing officer is generally employed by the city or county that issued the ticket, this is not surprising.
