TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet are considering a proposal for new license plates that would be easier for toll and red light cameras to read.
The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is asking for approval of the plan Tuesday.
The new plates would be completely flat. The raised surfaces on current plates make it difficult for the cameras to accurately record tag numbers.
As a result, millions in tolls and red light fines are going uncollected.
The agency's executive director, Julie Jones, says so far this year alone red light cameras have failed to read 2.8 million tags.
