As you pass through busy intersections in Tallahassee... you may soon want to smile... because you could be on camera.
Red light cameras may be on their way to the capital city.
The camera system is expected to cut down on red light runners, reduce police patrol at intersections, and could increase revenue to the city.
About 20 Florida cities already have the red light camera program.
"Safety by itself should be a sufficient benefit. There are revenues associated with this program - just the way the vendor structured it," says Gabriel Menendez, Director of Tallahassee Public Works.
Menendez say the cameras would take photos of cars and car tags... not drivers.
The red light cameras ordinance was introduced at the Tallahassee City Commission meeting tonight.
It's set for a public hearing on May 27th.
