Judge OKs Washington red light camera tickets

Associated Press

SEATTLE — A federal judge in Seattle dismissed a lawsuit alleging that Spokane and 17 other Washington cities charge too much for red light camera tickets.

More than 40 drivers brought the suit saying the tickets should have been equal to a parking ticket — about $20. The cities charge up to $124. Judge John C. Coughenour ruled Tuesday the fines are not excessive.

In addition to Spokane, the cities are Auburn, Bellevue, Bonney Lake, Bremerton, Burien, Federal Way, Fife, Issaquah, Lacey, Lake Forest Park, Lakewood, Lynnwood, Puyallup, Renton, SeaTac, Seattle and Tacoma.
