[UPDATE] 5-24

A red light camera in Tallahassee is temporarily out of service, but city officials say it's not a free pass to run lights.

The red light camera on the corner of Tennessee and Monroe will be shut down until road work is done in that area.

Specifically, the camera monitoring the north and south bound lanes of Monroe will be down, but the camera that monitors the east-bound lane of Tennessee street will remain on. City officials say safety is the bottom line, red light camera or not.

"We've been so impressed. At that one intersection of Monroe and Tennessee violations are down 96 percent. So our recommendation to people is treat it the same way you've been treating it," say Michelle Bono, Assistant to the Tallahassee City Manager.

Bono says the road construction will be done in a few weeks, at which time the camera will be up and running again.

Tallahassee, FL---

You may have one less intersection to worry about when it comes to that yellow traffic light followed by a camera flash.

A source tells us that at the corners of Monroe and Tennessee Street the red light cameras are coming down for a while.

The take down is supposed to happen tonight at some point.

Our source says, FDOT is having the streets near the intersection re-paved.

We contacted The City today to confirm the take down and have not yet received a response.
