Starting next Wednesday, Fort Lauderdale drivers who run a red light at certain intersections will be subject to fines of $158 for each offense. New red light cameras will be in effect at six locations next week.

These intersections include westbound State Road 84 at Southwest Ninth Avenue; westbound Commercial Boulevard at Northeast 21st Avenue; eastbound Sunrise Boulevard at Northwest 15th Avenue; northbound Federal Highway at State Road 84; northbound Federal Highway at Northeast Eighth Street; and eastbound Commercial Boulevard at Powerline Road.

The city has approved cameras at ten locations, but it awaiting permits from Broward County before installing cameras at the remaining four locations: Northeast 15th Avenue at Sunrise Boulevard; westbound Cypress Creek Road at Powerline Road; southbound Northwest 31st Avenue at Cypress Creek Road and eastbound Cypress Creek Road at Northwest 31st Avenue.

According to Fort Lauderdale officials, motorists who turn right at a red light camera will not receive a traffic ticket as long as they slow to a near stop and appear to be driving cautiously.
