Florida Supreme Court Could Refund Millions of Dollars in Red Light Fines

The Huffington Post reports on a case that will soon be heard by the Florida Supreme Court, contesting the legality of red light camera tickets issued by municipalities before such devices were approved by the Florida Legislature:

“Thousands of South Florida drivers caught on camera running red lights are one step closer to getting their ticket fines refunded, perhaps even with interest.

“Last week the Florida Supreme Court announced it has accepted jurisdiction in two cases questioning the use of red light cameras in a handful of Florida cities, including local municipalities Aventura and Pembroke Pines, which installed such cameras before they were approved by state law. …

“Red light cameras have always been controversial. The American Civil Liberties Union criticizes them as an invasion of privacy and Los Angeles recently un-installed them after ticketed drivers caught on camera consistently neglected to pay their fines. Tech companies have also developed gadgets like noPhoto that obscure how license plates are photographed by cameras at intersections.”
