Red light camera suit dismissed

Associated Press

SEATTLE – A federal judge in Seattle dismissed a lawsuit alleging that 18 cities in Washington 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. The News Tribune of Tacoma reports Judge John C. Coughenour ruled Tuesday the fines are not excessive.

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