JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville City Council approved installing red light cameras at ten of Jacksonville's most dangerous intersections, 25 different approaches. One of those intersections is Beach and University Boulevards.
Josh Mars drives through there every day. "It's a good thing," he said. "It needs it. I mean it's a really busy intersection. People are rushing."
Driver Beverly Baugh didn't quite agree. "I have mixed emotions about it," she said. "I understand that you're likely to get rear-ended with those things."
JSO says the cameras will cut down on crashes. If you run a red light, a camera will take a picture of your license plate. And after a police officer reviews the images, you'll get a $158 ticket in the mail.
The cameras are expected to add at least $1.5 million to the City's budget the first year they're up.
