Up for debate: Red light cameras

Posted: Updated:
ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

City council members in St. Petersburg are set to meet at 3 p.m. Thursday over the future of red light cameras.

Rear-end wrecks at intersections with red-light cameras have spiked just under 50 percent in the last year.

Council members will debate if the cameras actually make the streets safer or just generate cash for the city.

St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster wants to increase the number of cameras, but some say the cameras are the reason for the increase in accidents.

Stay with us for updates from today's meeting.
