UPDATE 7/25 3 PM
If you run a red light in the City of Miami, expect to get a ticket in the mail.
Commissioners today voted, 3-2, in favor of creating a special board to allowing drivers to appeal their red-light camera tickets.
That board won't be set up until September, but tickets will be issued again starting Friday.
After putting it off for a couple weeks, City of Miami commissioners will finally decide what to do about red-light cameras.
They will vote on a special city-run board that will allow drivers to appeal their tickets without having to go through the court system.
Despite hours of passionate debate during their last meeting, ssioners seemed deadlocked on the matter. Commissioners Marc Sarnoff and Willy Gort were in favor of the cameras from the get-go, while Francis Suarez and Frank Carollo were opposed. Suarez has made opposition to red-light cameras a focal point of his run for the mayoral seat.
Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones appears to be the swing vote, although it appears she is leaning towards supporting the ordinance.
More than 150 cameras are snapping away at nearly 100 intersections in Miami.
The city makes nearly $4 million a year in ticket revenue from the cameras.
