Ocoee posts top 10 red-light camera runners, hopes to shame would-be crash-em-up video stars into stopping

Ocoee police are putting together shaming videos of the city’s worst red-light runners using short clips from traffic cameras.

They have plenty to choose from — they issue 200 red-light tickets a week. But June’s mash-up will be hard to top.

It includes a screech-to-a-stop near-miss followed by an SUV flying through a red light. The final brazen infraction wasn’t captured by a red-light camera but by the dashboard cam of a police cruiser, idling in the turn lane. Police started making the videos, hoping to shame drivers into better driving habits.

“Today a lot more people are just distracted driving and that’s dangerous for all of us,” Deputy Police Chief Steve McCosker said. “Right now, we’re doing a monthly thing until either it gets old or people start driving better. Hopefully, the latter.”
