Twenty-five more red light cameras are coming to the city of West Palm Beach.
City commissioners approved a plan to place the cams at intersections throughout the city including 45th street and Military Trail, South Dixie Highway at Forest Hill Blvd. and Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard at North Congress Avenue, home of the future Palm Beach Fashion Outlets.
A report shows that traffic crashes doubled at intersections where five of the seven current red light cams are in place between Feburary 2011 and January 2013.
City leaders will examine the new cameras as they are installed.
The cams will cost the city $247,000 a month, and if you're caught on camera running a red light, it will cost you $158, but no points on your license.
Installation of the new cams will happen over the next several months.
