Cameras added to Collier intersections

Red Light CameraThe first two red-light cameras just finished their first month of citations in Collier County and now 10 more are planning to be installed. These cameras will be ready to go by early August at the latest, as it only takes weeks to install and setup them up. The Collier County Sheriff’s Office approved 252 citations off of those first two cameras, which are for $125 each. The total amount from the tickets is over $30,000 which is over $15,000 in citations per camera. The vendor who installs the cameras makes between $47.50 and $17.50 a tickets depending upon how many citations are given out from that camera. The county says that the primary purpose of these is to make intersections safer. These new cameras could mean millions in future revenue for the county.
