Fla. judge: Red-light cameras don't violate rights
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- A Broward County judge has ruled that red-light cameras don't violate constitutional rights.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that Judge Steven P. DeLuca ruled Wednesday on an array of issues including due process and speedy trial protections, and the admissibility of the images the cameras capture. He found none of the arguments held up in court.
Broward County began using red-light cameras in 2007. Since then, the county has faced hundreds of court challenges and cities have spent thousands defending citations.
Defense attorney Ted Hollander says he has begun appealing the decision.
