Red light cameras no longer allowed in portions of Miami-Dade County

MIAMI (WSVN) - Red light cameras will no longer be allowed in Miami-Dade County’s unincorporated areas.

A new ordinance was passed by county commissioners Tuesday, which struck down a previous policy allowing the cameras.

“These cameras have become a source of tension throughout our community and can prove very costly,” said District 6 Commissioner Rebeca Sosa.

“We have heard the residents of our unincorporated areas like Fontainebleau, Schenley Park, Westchester and Kendall to name a few, and I want them to know that I am working to make sure that red light cameras don’t get installed in their neighborhoods.”

The new ordinance does not affect red light cameras that are currently in municipalities.
