Ocoee, Fla., Signs Contract for Red-Light Camera Enforcement Program



January 28, 2009 By

The City Commission of Ocoee, Florida approved a contract with American Traffic Solutions (ATS) to serve as the city's red-light camera traffic safety program vendor. ATS serves more than 130 communities with red-light and speed camera programs, and is the largest vendor in Florida, already serving several communities.

"Red-light cameras are an effective tool in helping local police to enforce traffic laws and improve public safety without any additional cost to taxpayers, since the program is totally funded through red-light runners," said Ocoee Police Department Lieutenant Brad Draesher. "If we see a decrease in violations, crashes and injuries similar to what American Traffic Solutions has achieved in other Florida communities, Ocoee roadways will be much safer."

Ocoee is 15-20 minutes from Orlando in western Orange County, which is one of the fastest growing counties in all of Florida. With a population of more than 30,000, Ocoee is continuing to grow and has averaged more than one new home a day for the past seven years.
