The Florida House has narrowly voted to repeal a law allowing the use of cameras to catch red light runners.
It was passed just a year ago.
The 59-57 roll call on Monday sent the repeal bill (HB 4087) to the Senate where it's unlikely to pass as similar legislation (SB 672) hasn't made it out of committee there.
The repeal's sponsor, Rep. Richard Corcoran, a New Port Richey Republican, argued last year's law is nothing but a front to make money for companies that contract with local governments to provide the cameras.
Others argued the cameras are an invasion of privacy and disputed studies showing they save lives.
The law is named for Mark Wandall, who was killed by a red light runner in Bradenton.
