City Admits Wrongdoing When Trying to Fix Previous Error on Red Light Tickets

June 26th, 2017 at 7:00 am

red light tickets, Rolling Meadows traffic ticket lawyer, speeding tickets, traffic offenses, traffic violationsThe city of Chicago had inaccuracies on 1.9 million red light and speed-camera tickets. In an attempt to correct this mistake, it appears that Mayor Rahm Emanuel may have exacerbated the issue.

City Hall sent mail to recipients of the red light and speed camera tickets. The letters received attempted to offer another chance to appeal the tickets in court. The measure is widely identified as an effort to ward off a class-action lawsuit, pleading that the city failed to provide ticket holders enough time or notice to challenge their tickets.

One Cook County resident received five red light camera tickets for which she could only make out two of the videos. She was quoted as saying, “It’s alarming that they would do something like this.”

An official spokesman, Michael Claffey, indicated that the process to correct the fault in the system denying people adequate notice to contest their tickets would take considerable time to rectify.

Cook County offered no explanation for the issue, but opined that the malfunction might have been a result of the high traffic on the city’s website. The offer from the city to allow ticket holders another opportunity to appeal their tickets comes after a Cook County Circuit Judge denied a motion from the city to dismiss a class-action suit alleging the city violated due process by failing to provide adequate notice.

A Chicago attorney stated, “the Emanuel administration’s effort to force people to relitigate the city’s illegal behavior is a sham.” That same attorney explained that out of the 37 cases related to these red light cameras, 18 had no photographs or videos.
