BROOKSVILLE - The Brooksville City Council put the brakes on its red light camera enforcement program, following complaints from business owners and drivers. The council voted 3-2 to stop issuing tickets based on the four cameras mounted at intersections across the city.
The decision comes as good news to drivers like Yvonne Woods. Woods daughter got clipped with a $125 ticket for turning right on red without coming to a complete stop.
"My God, you know, people are losing their homes all over the place," said Woods.
"So here we are now with a $125 ticket because of a camera? It just doesn't make sense."
Brooksville issued approximately 5,500 traffic tickets between November 2009 and April, based on the red light cameras.
