Florida Appeals Court Upholds Aventura’s Red-Light Camera Program

Red Light Camera Appealed
The 3rd District Court of Appeal overturned a Miami-Dade County Judge’s ruling against the city of Aventura in a case involving a motorist who received a ticket for an improper right turn. His defense for fighting the ticket is that the city had illegally given “unfettered discretion” to a red-light camera company to review images of potential violations and act upon them.
 
The new ruling cites that the work American Traffic Solutions, the private contractor, is purely administrative and clerical. They are tasked with the grunt work of sorting through images that may be camera misfires or illegible as well as passing along “good” images to a police officer which will make the decision regarding a citation.
