Why does the city elect to use traffic enforcement cameras?
Keeping our citizens and visitors safe as they travel the streets of Apopka is a priority for our city.

According to a recent study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a study of large cities with longstanding programs found that cameras reduced the fatal red light running crash rate by 24 percent and the rate of all types of fatal crashes at signalized intersections by 17 percent. (IIHS January 24, 2013)

The city of Apopka currently has multiple cameras at ten different intersections within our city. It would take 40 full-time police officers to monitor those intersections 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The goal of this program is to reduce red light running violations, red light crashes, and red light injury crashes in a cost effective way to make our roadways safer for our citizens and visitors.
