Osceola County to get more red light cameras

Posted: Updated:
OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

More red light cameras are on their way to Osceola County.

The Orlando Sentinel reports county commissioners approved a deal to install the devices at 10 of the most dangerous intersections in the area.

Officials say the use of red light cameras spread rapidly since 2010 when state lawmakers approved their use.

The Orlando Sentinel reports drivers in Osceola who run red lights will face a $158 fine.

Officials say violators can contest the fine before a hearing officer, but would have to pay an additional $250 fee if the red-light violation is upheld. The county will receive $75 from each $158 fine, with the remaining $83 going to the state.

County leaders say they plans to use the fine proceeds for intersection improvements, such as new lighting and signage.
