Traffic cameras installed in Ocala
The city of Ocala is now under surveillance. The Florida Department of Transportation is installing 17 new cameras on intersections, and along Interstate 75 to monitor traffic. The cameras will also come with message boards, which will direct cars in case of a traffic jam. Florida Department of Transportation public information officer Steve Olson says the cameras will not be equipped with a recording device.
“There’s also been an issue that it has something to do with red light cameras, and these are not red light cameras at all. These are strictly for us to have an eye on traffic, what’s going on on the roadways if there’s a traffic problem.” he says.
If the cameras prove successful, they will also be placed along the turnpike.
