ORANGE PARK, Fla.-- Not so fast drivers! Soon, someone will be watching you in Orange Park. Well, in this case -- someTHING.
"The government try to catch us in anything," Mark Palscencia said.
Orange Park is the latest town in North Florida to invest in red-light cameras. Over the next 20 days, crews will be installing, setting up and unveiling the machines at three intersections. They'll be at Kingsley and 17, Kingsley and Debarry and Park and Loring.
"Hopefully these red-light cameras will not only make people aware of running the red lights, but make them aware they need to slow down," Orange Park Police Chief Gary Goble said.
Some drivers we spoke with feel the machines are an invasion of privacy.
"I think they're annoying," Palscencia continued.
This afternoon, we staked out Jacksonville's cameras at the corner of Baymeadows and Southside. We caught one car running a yellow light and ending up in the intersection.
Goble says that's exactly his point -- offenders need to be held accountable. He says it's something everyone has to get used to.
"It's simple. You just have to be aware of," he said.
Orange Park's cameras will go "live" April 1st. A 30-day public awareness campaign will begin next month.
