JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Attention drivers! Three red light cameras are going live today in Jacksonville.
Sheriff John Rutherford says drivers need to be mindful, because each red light camera violation will cost $158. The first notice carries no penalty points, but if you ignore it, the fine increases to $274 and three points are assessed against your license.
Once the cameras go live Wednesday, there will be a 30-day grace period. If the camera catches you running a red light inside that window, you'll get a letter of warning in the mail, after 30 days, you get a ticket.
Red light cameras are going active at three locations Wednesday morning:
- Baymeadows Road at Southside Boulevard on the eastbound approach
- Baymeadows Road at Southside Boulevard on the westbound approach
- Southside Boulevard at Touchton Road on the southbound approach
Sheriff Rutherfor says taxpayers will not have to pay for the cameras. The system will be funded with the money from violations.
The City of Jacksonville has posted a complete list of red light camera locations
that will go live at later dates as well.
