Sure can support this one,

Local state-lawmakers are voicing support for a Florida House of Representatives bill that would remove a law that authorized the use of cameras to issue tickets to drivers who run red lights.
The bill, filed by Rep. Frank Artiles, R-Miami, would repeal the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act of 2010 from Florida Law. Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, filed the Senate companion to the bill in state September.
The Wandall Act was signed by former Gov. Charlie Crist in 2010 and created statewide consistent standards for the use of cameras as traffic enforcement devices.
Currently, the cities of Gulf Breeze and Milton use the technology. There are three intersections monitored by cameras in Gulf Breeze and three monitored in Milton, according to law enforcement officials.
In Gulf Breeze, the infraction involves only a $158 fine, and no points on the driver's license.
Pensacola area Rep. Mike Hill said research conducted by his office could find "no measurable reductions of accidents at many intersections" because of the cameras.
