Spokane faces class-action lawsuit over red-light cameras
Mon., June 16, 2014
The city of Spokane has not refunded traffic ticket money a judge ruled was wrongfully collected using red-light cameras, and is still is trying to collect on those who haven’t paid, according to a lawsuit filed last week. A class-action lawsuit involving potentially thousands of drivers asks the city to repay two-and-a-half years’ worth of tickets, worth $124 each, which could amount to $2.1 million. The traffic tickets were written for running red lights or turning without coming to a complete stop.
