Red light cameras contract looking for the green light
Gainesville city staff has completed contract negotiations on a plan to install red light cameras, and city commissioners will see the draft soon. The commission is scheduled to discuss the current proposal this week. City Attorney Marion Radson once the program is approved it would still be a few months before the cameras are installed, and even longer before the city starts giving tickets.
He says the red light cameras program is built on a solid foundation.
He says both the state legislature and the city commission hope these cameras would decrease fatalities and crashes on Gainesville’s roadways.
