Changes for 'Stop on Red' program

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

Big changes are going into effect for St. Peterburg's "Stop on Red" program.

A driver now cannot be ticketed if they come to a complete stop at any point before turning right.

Also, if you get a ticket, you may request a hearing within 60 days or pay the $158 fine.

It used to be that a driver only had 30 days to pay the fine, and there was no hearing option. After 60 days if you don't pay or request a hearing, you'll be issued a uniform traffic citation.

Mayor Bill Foster reiterated that he has great faith in the effectiveness of the city's "Stop on Red" campaign and says he plans to continue using the red light cameras.
