Missouri redlight camera settlement reached

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Hundreds of thousands of people who got tickets when their vehicles were photographed running red lights in Missouri could be in line to get some money back.

Attorneys for ticketed drivers and camera supplier American Traffic Solutions said Friday they have agreed to a proposed settlement of several class-action lawsuits.

They said the deal calls for 20 percent refunds to be paid on up to 800,000 tickets issued in 27 Missouri cities served by ATS cameras. At an average ticket of $100, the settlement could amount to as much as $16 million.

The cities include Kansas City, St. Joseph, St. Louis and numerous suburbs of St. Louis.

The lawsuits claimed the traffic camera ordinances violated people’s due process rights and state law. The settlement includes no admission of wrongdoing.
