Florida Red Light Camera Ticket Law
August 27, 2010
The Florida legislature recently authorized departments, municipalities, and counties to use cameras to issue tickets for the running of red lights. This Red Light Camera Statute, F.S. 316.0083, in part states that notification of a violation must be sent to the owner of the motor vehicle within thirty days informing that person of the remedies under F.S. 318.14 and that they must pay a $158.00 fine or furnish an affidavit of defense pursuant to the statute within thirty days of the notification. The statute also sets out other details such as where the fine will go and defenses.
