State Representative Jimmy Patronis wants to end the use of red light cameras.
State Senator Rene Garcia filed the bill earlier this month that would remove the cameras from state roads by July. The senator says they are an invasion of privacy. Patronis is the only co-sponsor of the bill.
There are currently 50 cameras scanning the streets of Bay County. However, their purpose Is to check for traffic flow. It is not to enforce the law.
Several Florida cities and counties, including Tallahassee are using the cameras to enforce the law. That generates money for local governments and also the state.
