The city of Kissimmee, Florida, just outside of Orlando, is installing new red-light cameras at 10 intersections in the city this month to try and prevent car accidents.
The first set of cameras went up at the busy intersection of Main Street and Neptune Road. Violators will only be issued a warning for the first 30 days the cameras are in place and running. After that cautionary first month, drivers will receive a ticket for $158. Leave the ticket unpaid for 30 days, and the fine will go up and points will be added to the driver’s license.
The intersections were selected for being either known for having many red-light runners or for their heavy volume. The other red-light cameras coming online this month are at:
- Main Street and Columbia Avenue
- Vine Street and Bass Road
- Vine and Dyer Boulevard
- Vine and Thacker Avenue
- Vine and John Young Parkway
- Vine and Michigan Avenue
- John Young and Carroll Street
- John Young and Emmett Street
- Michigan and Osceola Parkway
If you have been injured in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you understand that injuries are only one part of the tragedy. Emotional distress, loss of job wages and insurance hassles can also add to the stressful situation.
