The Constitutionality Of "Red Light Cameras"
A while back I told you that three Circuit Court judges in Pasco County had ruled that red light cameras were unconstitutional because the cameras violated the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
As you might expect, that drew considerable opposition from Pam Bondi, the Florida Attorney General who filed a motion to intervene in the case.
The result is that the three judges withdrew their opinion on a technicality - that the Attorney General had not been served with notice of the appeal.
It is important to note that the judges did not declare the cameras constitutional and their legal reasoning still seems to be sound. However, at the present time there is no appellate ruling one way or the other.
Given the considerable funds being generated by red light camera tickets, local governments appear to be glossing over the Constitutional concerns.
