TAMPA, Florida -- The city of Tampa will activate six new red light cameras on Jan. 1, bringing its total to nearly 50 across the city, more than any other city in West or Central Florida.

Tampa Police confirmed drivers will be ticketed at two of the new monitored intersections the 10 News Investigators identified in October:

  • Fowler & 30th St./Bruce B. Downs Eastbound
  • Fowler & 30th St./Bruce B. Downs Westbound
  • Fowler & 30th St./Bruce B. Downs Southbound
  • Fowler & 30th St./Bruce B. Downs Northbound
  • Fowler & 30th St./Bruce B. Downs Westbound (left-hand turn)
  • Fowler & 30th St./Bruce B. Downs Northbound (left-hand turn)
  • Howard & Kennedy Northbound
  • Howard & Kennedy Eastbound

Additionally, Tampa Police are looking at activating the red light camera at Hillsborough & Florida Westbound on Jan. 15.

No warnings will be issued; police say enforcement signs have been posted at the intersections for months and should have sufficiently warned drivers.

TIMELINE: 10 News' Short Yellows Investigation

Tampa is also considering adding more red light cameras at the following intersections:

  • Westshore & Kennedy
  • Dale Mabry & Martin Luther King Jr.

Engineers from the city of Tampa tell 10 News the yellow lights have been adjusted at these intersections to allow drivers more time to make safe decisions at a changing signal.

THIS SATURDAY AT 8 P.M., watch 10 News' special presentation of "The Red Light Fight for Your Roadway Rights," a 30-minute look at the Investigators' year-long effort to bring fairness to red light camera intersections.
