Wow, this is huge, Fla Judge says officer written Red Light tickets no good

"I think this is a huge ruling -- not only in Broward County, but I think it's a huge ruling for the entire state of Florida and maybe beyond," Hollander said. 
In the ruling, the judge said it is not fair that red light runners caught by police face a stiff fine and points on their license, compared to those nabbed by the cameras, who face a smaller fine and no points.

"This violates the Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution, as well as the Florida Constitution," the judge wrote. 
"To have two different standards for the same type of driving pattern is unconstitutional," Hollander said.
