Red Light Camera

Summary Report
Leaders in Service Agents of Progress Champions for Safety

Fiscal Year 20142015


DECEMBER 31, 2015
revised 01/07/16

Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles

Introduction
Section 316.0083(4)(b), Florida Statutes, directs the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (department) to provide a summary report on the use and operation of traffic infraction detectors (red light cameras) in Florida. Per statute, the
department must include a review of information submitted to the department by the counties and municipalities and must
describe the enhancement of the traffic safety and enforcement programs.
Section 316.0083, Florida Statutes, describes the process for violations of traffic infraction detectors. A traffic infraction
enforcement officer issues a Notice of Violation (NOV) to the violator within 30 days of a violation. The violator may pay the
notice or contest the violation through an appeals process within 60 days. If the violator fails to pay or appeal the notice, a
traffic infraction enforcement officer issues a Uniform Traffic Citation (UTC) to the violator, with a copy to the Clerk of Court for
adjudication.
Part one of the report summarizes red light camera programs that were operational during Fiscal Year (FY) 2014-2015. Part
two includes the departments analysis of crashes that occurred at red light camera intersections.

Part 1
Survey Methodology
The department created an online survey to gather information and data from counties and municipalities (jurisdictions)
responsible for the administration of red light camera programs during FY 2014-2015. The 26 question survey included topics
such as procedures, NOVs and program size, and covered activity that occurred from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015. As there is
no statewide oversight of red light camera programs, the department does not have a definitive number of red light cameras
in operation, nor the location of such cameras. Therefore, jurisdictions were also asked to complete a spreadsheet regarding
camera and intersection locations, along with dates of operation. With this self-reported information, the department was
able to independently analyze crash data.
Surveys were distributed to all jurisdictions that responded to previous red light camera surveys, and to those who remitted
red light camera monies to the Department of Revenue (DOR) during the reporting period. In addition, the Florida Sheriffs
Association, the Florida Police Chiefs Association, the Florida League of Cities and the Florida Association of Counties aided in
distributing surveys to their members.
The deadline for survey responses was October 1, 2015. Actions that jurisdictions may have taken related to their program
after that date are not reflected in this report.

Summary of Survey Responses


In total, 71 jurisdictions responded that red light cameras were operational during the outlined reporting period (July 1, 2014
June 30, 2015). Of the jurisdictions that remitted monies to the DOR during the reporting period, Bal Harbour Village and
Florida City were the only jurisdictions that did not respond to the departments survey.
Nine (12.7%) jurisdictions reported an increase in the number of red light cameras in operation, 22 (31.0%) reported a decrease and 40 (56.3%) reported no change. Similarly, six (8.5%) jurisdictions reported an increase in the number of intersections with an operational red light camera, 20 (28.2%) reported a decrease and 45 (63.4%) reported no change. Further, 53
jurisdictions reported that they are continuing their red light camera program in FY 2015-2016.

Enforcement

Jurisdictions indicated:
963,039 NOVs issued1
o 630,365 (65.4%) paid fine
o 14,814 (1.5%) contested and dismissed
3,036 vehicle registration holds requested by jurisdictions
3,438 persons were issued multiple red light camera violations
1

Some jurisdictions reported that they were not able to track the status of NOVs, therefore actual numbers may vary.

Figure 1 shows the number of NOVs issued for red light camera violations over the past four years. The graph also depicts
the number of citations issued in person by law enforcement. The number of NOVs issued for red light camera violations has
remained relatively steady, decreasing approximately four percent from FY 2011-2012 to FY 2014-2015. Over the same time
period, the number of in-person UTCs issued for running a red light has decreased (approximately 30% reduction). The department must rely on self-reported information for the number of NOVs issued each year, but in-person citations are tracked
through the Clerk of the Court System (UTC numbers reflect data submitted to the department as of 12/31/2015).

Right-Hand Turns

Pursuant to section 316.0083, Florida Statutes:


A Notice of Violation and a traffic citation may not be issued for failure to stop at a red light if the driver is making a
right-hand turn in a careful and prudent manner at an intersection where right-hand turns are permissible.
A Notice of Violation and Uniform Traffic Citation may not be issued under this section if the driver of the vehicle came
to a complete stop after crossing the stop line and before turning right if permissible at a red light, but failed to stop before crossing over the stop line or other point at which a stop is required.

The terms in this section of statute are left to the interpretation of each respective
jurisdiction (see Appendix C for definitions provided to the department). For FY
2014-2015, 68 percent of responding jurisdictions issued NOVs for persons making
right turns on red signals. Jurisdictions indicated that 253,744 (26.34%) NOVs were
issued for right-hand turns during the reporting period (July 1, 2014 June 30,
2015). This was the first year the department has collected these numbers.

The department also inquired on what other actions jurisdictions had taken to
improve safety measures at intersections during the reporting period. A majority of
jurisdictions indicated that they had implemented at least one action. The results
of this question are shown in Figure 4 (see Appendix D for other responses).

Part 2
Crash Analysis
Jurisdictions self-reported crash information for the past three red light camera reports. This year, however, the camera and
intersection information provided by the jurisdictions allowed the department to independently analyze crashes using the
official crash database. Intersections were only included in the analysis if at least one camera was active for at least one year,
and the camera was activated between January 1, 2012 and September 30, 2014. These criteria were chosen because the
current crash report form was implemented in 2011, and these dates allow at least one year comparison before and after the
activation of the camera. Table 2 shows the breakdown of crashes that occurred before and after the activation of red light
cameras at intersections included in the analysis. Reference Appendix A and B for a breakdown of crashes by reporting jurisdiction.

See Appendix C for definitions

The change in number of crashes noted in the analysis follows the statewide trend during the period of this analysis (approximately 50% increase statewide, 2011-2014). Two possible factors that could have contributed to the change in crash numbers
are the increase in vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and the increase in crash reports with accurate location information (latitude
and longitude). The probability of a crash occurring increases as people drive more, and daily VMT in Florida increased 4.7
percent from 2011 to 2014. The second factor is attributed to the reliance on location data for this analysis. In order to analyze
crashes that occurred at certain intersections, it is necessary to know both the location of the intersection and the location of
crashes. Intersection locations (latitude and longitude) were submitted along with the survey, however latitude and longitude are not attached to every crash report. The percentage of crash reports with location information has increased statewide 6.85 percent from 2011 to 2015, so it is possible that a higher percentage of crashes were analyzed in the after window
than in the before window. The crash analysis should be put into context of the overall complexity of the issue at hand, as
other factors may contribute to the change in number of crashes outlined in this report.

Recommendations
The following recommendations would allow for accurate reporting of information that cannot currently be tracked through
existing systems.
1. Require jurisdictions to track camera information including location (GPS coordinates) and dates of operation.
2. Require jurisdictions to track the issuance of NOVs, including the status of those violations (paid, contested, issued
as UTC).
3. Require jurisdictions to track the issuance of NOVs for right-hand turns.
4. Require jurisdictions to report safety countermeasures taken prior to and after the installation of red light cameras
(examples: infrastructure changes, type and layout of signage, pedestrian cross walks, bike lanes, intelligent transportation systems [ITS]).
5. In accordance with statute, the department will continue to review and report on the status and trends of the use and
operation of red light cameras. In order to determine the enhancement of traffic safety, the department recommends a
more thorough analysis be conducted by an independent organization using appropriate local and state agency resources.

You can make a turn in a "careful and prudent manner" after coming to a complete stop pursuant to the directives of Florida
Statute 316.075. However, our officers use their discretion when reviewing the violations and do not issue violations to
anyone going under 12 MPH during a right turn unless aggravating circumstances exists.

Does not apply to City of Tamarac. Right turns on red are only enforced at the location which is posted "No Turn On Red"
Where the violators vehicle making the right on red against a solid red light does not interfere with oncoming traffic and/or
pedestrians so as to constitute a hazard.
If the reviewing officer were standing at the intersection and observed the violation, would he/she issue the driver a regular
written UTC? If so, then it is also a Red Light Camera violation.

City of Tamarac

City of Tallahassee

See attached "Question 21"


the statute also reads "but failed to stop before crossing over the stop line or other point at which a stop is required"
As a general guide, the Tallahassee Police Department uses the term "careful & prudent manner" as not negatively
effecting pedestrians and other vehicles.

Only Posted Intersections Per the Hearing Officer: as long as the right turn does not violate the right of way of other vehicle
or pedestrian traffic.
This is determined by the law enforcement officer who issues the violations and by the Special Magistrate who presides
over hearings for contested violations based on the individual circumstances.

Less than 12 mph and determination by TIEO on statute compliance.

Our traffic enforcement specialists review all potential violations where motorists cross the stop bar at 15 MPH or more.
The traffic enforcement officer considers the totality of the circumstances to determine if a violation occurred. A notice of
violations is issued when the motorist proceeds to make the turn without slowing down, or causes other motorists to brake
or take evasive action, .

Violations are issued for right turns on red whenever the driver operates a vehicle in a continual motion without regard for
oncoming, opposing or pending traffic at an intersection. The violation is also issued whenever the operator fails to slow,
stop or yield to any pedestrian, or vehicle making a U-turn at a perpendicular angle.

As it relates to right hand turn on red, the intersection must have signage stating "No turn on red" in order for a violation to
be issued.
Reviewing Officer determination, officers are instructed to only issue notices had they been present at the intersection and
would have issued a UTC for the same violation for running the red light.
We only issue right turn on red violations at one intersection. That intersection is posted no right turn on red with two signs
prohibiting the right turn. One of the two signs is electronic and lights up when the light is red.

The combination of speed, proximity of other traffic, and or proximity of pedestrians, is considered to determine whether
turn was careful and prudent.

A review is triggered if the vehicle's minimum speed at the final point of measurement before entering intersection is at
least 14 mph. At that point, the issuing officer has discretion to determine careful and prudent.

As long as it's safe and doesn't effect other vehicles traveling in that direction.

Careful and prudent manner is defined by our jurisdiction by the vehicle coming to a complete stop than proceeding as long
as the flow of traffic allows.
Taking into account the speed of the vehicle while turning, if there are pedestrians in the area, the length of time that the
light has been red.

Statute 316.0083(1)(a), F.S., provides that "A notice of violation and a traffic citation may not be issued for failure to stop
at a red light if the driver is making a right-hand turn in a careful and prudent manner at an intersection where right-hand
turns are permissible." As this statute does not define "careful and prudent manner," please provide the definition used
by your jurisdiction when determining if a violation should be issued.

Based on the preset and visual speed at the time a vehicle makes the right turn and if there are any pedestrians in the
crosswalk or on the sidewalk.
maximum safe speeds per FDOT green book

Complete stop necessary prior to proceeding with the right-hand turn when heavy vehicle traffic on the roadway the vehicle
turns onto. Vehicle must not turn when pedestrians are within the crosswalk.
As per local head county traffic judge determination right turns completed at 12 mph or higher on a right turn in not careful
or prudent.
Vehicle traveling at 12 MPH or less, no pedestrians in the intersection, no cross or turning traffic affected.
Only one intersection is monitored. A vehicle has to pull into the bicycle lane and pass other vehicles before making the
right hand turn and failing to come to a complete stop.
When the vehicle in question is traveling in excess of 12 miles per hour and makes a right-hand turn without stopping or
when pedestrians are present in the crosswalk and the vehicle does not come to a complete stop.
THE DRIVER OF THE VEHICLE FAILED TO MAKE A COMPLETE STOP WHEN ENTERING THE INTERSECTION WITH
A RED LIGHT.

A right turn on red conducted at a speed greater than 15 mph without hesitating to slow prior to initiating the turn.
Consideration is given to the amount of traffic in the adjacent lanes, U-turning vehicles having the right of way, traffic on the
road way, and pedestrian traffic at the intersection.
The term careful and prudent is not specifically defined by Florida State Statute. It is however referred to in 316.1925 as
follows: Careless driving- Any person operating a vehicle upon the streets or highways within the state shall drive the same
in a careful and prudent manner, having regard for the width, grade, curves, corners, traffic, and all other attendant
circumstances, so as not to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person. Failure to drive in such manner shall
constitute careless driving and a violation of this section. It can therefore be inferred that making a right turn in a manner
that would violate 316.1925 meets the legislated standard for issuance of a right turn violation under 316.0083.

X
X

Traveling at a low rate of speed (Normally between 10-15mph). No pedestrians present. Not interrupting the flow of traffic.
any vehicle which makes a right hand turn and fails to fully stop before the turn and is travelling faster than 12 mph at the
start of the turn.
Only enforce right on red at locations that have a no turn on red sign when lit IF vehicle does not stop within their turn.

The vehicle should be traveling less than 15 miles per hour. Drivers must yield the right of way to other drivers and to

What action(s) has your jurisdiction taken to improve safety measures as a


result of your red light camera program?
(at intersection(s) with red light cameras)

Consideration of factors for a safe turn include: People present in the area, day or night, weather conditions, wet roads,
fog/smoke, number of cars on roadway, time of day, cars in intersection, speed of cars traveling, speed of violation vehicle,
size of vehicles around subject car, any obstructed views etc..
Motorists may make a turn in a careful and prudent manner after coming to a complete stop pursuant to the directives of
Florida statute 316.075. However, our officers use their discretion when reviewing the violations and do not issue violations
to anyone going under 16mph during a right hand turn unless aggravating circumstances exist.
The camera footage is viewed by a sworn law enforcement officer employed by the Manatee County Sheriff's Office. If the
deputy reviewing the footage feels they would ticket the violation if they were in person at the light then they make the
determination to ticket the violation from the camera.
The vehicle must come to a stop at some point during the negotiation of the turn. The vehicle must yield to pedestrians and
on-coming traffic.

If there is no apparent effort to slow down or stop and the speed exceeds a minimum of 10 mph.
HCSO maintains a 15 mph threshold for right on red violations and only possesses two intersections with right turn
enforcement.

RIGHT HAND TURN TO BE MADE AFTER EXERCISING CAUTION BY SLOWING DOWN TO ALLOW FOR
PEDESTRIANS IN CROSSWALK TO CONTINUE SAFELY AND TO ALSO GIVE RIGHT OF WAY TO ANY ONCOMING
TRAFFIC
More than 15 MPH approach and/ or pedestrians trying to cross the intersection.

Name of jurisdiction (City or County)

Statute 316.0083(1)(a), F.S., provides that "A notice of violation and a traffic citation may not be issued for failure to stop
at a red light if the driver is making a right-hand turn in a careful and prudent manner at an intersection where right-hand
turns are permissible." As this statute does not define "careful and prudent manner," please provide the definition used
by your jurisdiction when determining if a violation should be issued.
