JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Three busy intersections in Jacksonville are now employing cameras designed to capture motorists who run red lights.
For the past month, the cameras were in place with a grace period where no citations were issued. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said the cameras did capture 467 violations.
The intersections with active cameras: Southside Boulevard southbound at Touchton Road; Baymeadows Road and Southside both east and westbound.
The tickets are sent in the mail and carry a $158 fine if paid within 30 days. Fines paid later than that almost double, $274.
An officer first reviews the video before a citation is mailed. Anyone who believes the camera is wrong can click on a web site listed on the ticket that will give access to six seconds before and after the alleged red light infraction.
