In Florida, benefits of red-light safety cameras extend beyond public safety and into the world of cutting edge science. The Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act allocates a portion of traffic fines collected from safety cameras to Florida's trauma centers and to The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. The Miami Project's research into spinal cord and brain injuries has a direct impact on the many victims of motor vehicle accidents that suffer these types of life altering injuries.

Melissa Wandall lost her husband to a red-light runner two weeks before she gave birth to their daughter Madisyn. Her tragic loss prompted her to become an advocate for road safety and her efforts resulted in the passage of The Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act. www.melissawandall.com

Marc Buoniconti is the Chief Fundraiser for The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. Following in the footsteps of his father -- Miami Dolphins Hall of Famer Nick Buoniconti -- Marc was pursuing a professional football career when injury on the college football field left him paralyzed. He has been on a mission for a cure ever since. www.miamiproject.miami.edu
