St. Louis to Refund $5.6M on Red-Light Camera Tickets

The city of St. Louis says it will refund roughly $5.6 million to motorists who paid red-light camera tickets over the past year and a half.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the pledge comes a day after the Missouri Supreme Court struck down the ordinance governing red-light cameras in the city.

The city immediately halted the red-light camera program and dismissed pending cases.

Officials say they are considering the best way to pay back the money and to mull creating a new red-light camera ordinance that passes legal muster.

Refunds only will go to motorists who paid tickets since Feb. 14, 2014. Anyone who paid a ticket before then was eligible for a class-action settlement amounting to about $20 per ticket.
