Some 9,000 drivers who may have inappropriately been ticketed in Chicago for running a red light over issues with a controversial camera system will be able to fight their cases, even though the usual deadline for doing so has expired.
Details of how that challenge process will work were not immediately available Wednesday when the city’s transportation chief said during a city council committee hearing that late appeals would be allowed, the Chicago Tribune reports.
However, drivers who believe they may have been affected can confirm whether their license plates are on the newspaper’s list of potential problem tickets by checking another Chicago Tribune page.
The newspaper’s reporting revealed issues with as many as 13,000 red-light camera tickets, as a previous Chicago Tribune (sub. req.) article details.
