Tampa, St. Pete begin fining red-light runners

PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Red-light runners beware: there are now fines for breaking the law in Tampa and St. Petersburg.

Tampa began fining red-light violators Tuesday. St. Petersburg began on Saturday, and in that city, those caught on camera and video running red lights at 11 busy intersections will get fined $158.

The cameras are projected to produce nearly $900,000 in revenue.

St. Petersburg and Tampa join other area jurisdictions that have installed cameras, such as Hillsborough County, Temple Terrace, Port Richey, Kenneth City, Gulfport and South Pasadena.

In St. Petersburg, officials expect to average between six and 10 tickets per intersection a day.
