Red Light Cams Go Live In Boca Raton Very Soon

Red Light Camera

Red Light Camera

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Admit it. It is a great feeling. You are sitting at one of Boca Raton’s (or Suburban Boca Raton’s) major intersections, like Palmetto Park Road and Powerline, obeying the law and minding your own business, when someone speeds through the intersection after the light has turned red.

Poof! A bright strobe light flashes. You look around, wondering what happened and then it strikes you.

“There’s a red light camera there!”

Yes, Boca Raton is joining other municipalities nationwide by activating ‘red light’ cameras at several intersections. Controversial, and some claim illegal, the cameras generate tickets that are sent to the owner of the car if that car is captured doing something that it shouldn’t be doing. The offenses do not add points to your license, but do add revenue to the city — at least until the city spends that revenue fighting the legality of ‘red light’ cameras in court.

The cameras are in ‘warning mode’ through April 15th, then go live. After that, drivers caught running red lights will be fined.

The cameras are located at the following intersections:

• East & West bound Glades Road at NW 15 Street
• East bound Glades Road at St. Andrews Blvd
• North bound St. Andrews Blvd at Glades Road
• North and South bound Federal Highway at NE 20 Street
• North and South bound Military Trail at Spanish River Blvd
• North and South bound Congress Avenue at Clint Moore Road
• East and West bound Glades Road at NW 2nd Avenue

Fines will run $158, of which the city will collect $75, the State of Florida $67.20, and Palm Beach County $15.80.
