Description

Our first-of-its-kind investigation exposed cities, counties, and the state of Florida abusing red light camera technology to improperly increase tickets on unsuspecting drivers. The initial piece - one of more than 40 parts in the series - revealed how the state was systematically reducing yellow light intervals and generating millions of dollars in extra fines. The outrage it provoked, coupled with our ensuing reporting, prompted major reforms to Florida laws. This entry is a half-hour special highlighting our year-long investigation that exemplifies IRE ideals.
