Red light cameras are a go -
That's if the City Council approves Mayor Brown's proposed budget, which includes 25 red light cameras to be installed at major Jacksonville intersections. The city hopes to make $1.5 million dollars off of violations next year.
Jon Rowe tells our news partner channel 4 it's a good idea.
"I think you see so much of people running these lights nowadays," he said.
But Victoria Douglas says it's not fair because some of the cameras don't record the license plate numbers correctly. A friend of hers got a ticket that wasn't his.
"It's not even his car but it has his license plate number on it and it was a green light actually," Douglas said.
"I think they should take better care of them first and like test them out before they actually start giving tickets to people," she added.
Jessica Byrd tells channel 4 she was hit by a car that ran a red light at U-S 1 and Old Saint Augustine Road.
"A camera or a cop. I mean if you're doing the wrong thing, you're responsible," Byrd said.
Byrd says she thinks there's other ways they could raise money, but they should ticket people anyways for running the lights.
If the budget is approved by the City Council, the cameras are set to be installed this September.
