19 Jun Camera Fine System is Not Acceptable to South Florida Drivers
Whatever you think of South Florida red-light cameras — lifesavers or revenue generators — there’s one part of the system that’s particularly galling. If you meekly accept the ticket that’s been mailed to you, you pay $158. But if you want to fight in court, you have no choice but to gamble and risk nearly doubling the fine — to $295 — if you lose.
“Inherently unfair, and total coercion,” said Fort Lauderdale attorney Jason Forman.
