Red-Light Runners (Officially) Won't Have to Pay Their Tickets After This Week
This week the city's red-light camera program will breathe its last.
The police commission voted yesterday to officially stop collecting fines from red-light runners caught on tape in Los Angeles who haven't paid their fines, according to the Los Angeles Daily News. The red-light program was killed about eight months ago, but if you haven't paid your fines by now, the city is going to just let it go after Saturday. (If you already paid a fine, sorry there won't be any refunds).
The city killed the program because of concerns that it was too costly, unenforceable and actually ended up causing more rear-end collisions.
