FL Lawmakers Put Brakes on Red-Light Camera Law

Lead in text: 
Beginning July 1, there will be a number of changes to Florida's red-light camera laws. There will be a more comprehensive appeal process, including giving drivers more time to respond to charges. Critics say the cameras aren't about safety, but about making money.
Did you get a ticket from a red-light camera you don't think you deserve? How you appeal that will change, starting July 1, thanks to legislation sponsored by state Sen. Jeff Brandes.The changes will create more work for cities and counties that use red-light cameras but will fix other problems, according to one of the region's most vocal red-light camera critics.
