Red Light Camera Bill Heads to Crist

Florida drivers may want to put the brakes on a bad habit of running a red light.

The Florida Senate voted Tuesday 30-7 to send the bill to Governor Charlie Crist that would authorize automatic cameras to ticket red light violators.

According to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles In 2008, 76 deaths and more than 5,600 injuries were caused by motorists ignoring red lights.

The state estimates it will receive $29.2 million in the first year while local governments are expected to get $10.1 million in the first year.
