Red Light Camera Appealed

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

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.

The closure leaves employees without any certainty about their future including Kelisha Able whose husband is also a driver for the company. “Right now, I am going crazy,” Able said. “We don’t know how we are going to pay our rent, we don’t know how we are going to start for our kids to go back to school, all the bills that we have.
