MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) - If you've driven through Midway, chances are you've seen one of these cameras for months now.
The City of Tallahassee did away with its program more than a year ago because it wasn't profiting the city.
But here in Midway, there's a steady stream of funds coming in.
City manager Auburn Ford says the city's agreement with the camera provider guarantees around $3,000 a month. Anything more that comes in from the citations is a surplus for the city.
Every two weeks, Ford says, there are about 70 to 80 citations. And lately, that's meant around six to seven thousand dollars a month coming to Midway.
Midway has installed two cameras on Blue Star Highway, which is U.S. 90. One camera is by the "Pilot" gas station, the other, by the "Flying J" gas station.
Ford says there haven't been any major incidents at these intersections since the cameras were put in, adding that safety has always been a priority.
As a reminder, vehicles are required to make a full stop before making a turn. Those who don't are likely to get a ticket.
The Midway city manager says the state receives the majority of funds from red light citations. He says there have been recent efforts by state lawmakers to do away with the cameras but none have been successful.
