Miami-Dade Drivers May Need to Pay for Red Light Tickets

alex-king-lbwjS4QdpNU-unsplashAfter a Florida appeals court recently ruled that specific compliance procedures in more than a dozen cities did not violate the requirement that Florida’s traffic laws be uniform, numerous Miami-Dade drivers may find themselves having to pay hefty fines as a result of red-light camera tickets.

A panel of three judges ruled in favor of Aventura and against a driver contesting his ticket, arguing that the hodgepodge of enforcement procedures was not compliant with state law. In 2018, a Miami-Dade County Judge accepted the driver’s claim, a decision that had previously left red-light tickets in a state of legal obscurity and resulted in the appeal process.

With the appeals court ruling, Aventura as well as other cities in Miami-Dade can technically proceed with collecting fines from numerous red-light camera violators in recent years. However, that effort might count on the outcome of a likely appeal that looks like it’s bound for the Florida Supreme Court.
