Fort Lauderdale to Add 30 Red-Light Cameras: Your Handy Map

If Fort Lauderdale's red-light program has helped traffic safety, there's no way to actually tell yet. Crashes at the six intersections where cameras are currently installed actually went up slightly after their installation, but it went from 21 to 24 crashes over ten months, so it's not clear what changed.

Despite the uncertainty, the Fort Lauderdale City Commission last week approved a measure to add 30 cameras at 15 new intersections around the city, and they're projected to be up and running by August 1. That includes six new intersections on Federal Highway, bringing the total number of monitored intersections on that road to eight.

During testing of the new sites, the company, American Traffic Solutions, found the intersection of Oakland Park Boulevard and Federal Highway to have the most violations, followed by the intersection at Cypress Creek Road. Here's a map of all the installed and to-be-installed red-light cameras in the city and a list of them below it.
