Chicago red light camera ticket holders may get new appeal

CHICAGO — More than a million recipients of Chicago red light and speeding tickets may get a second chance to fight those tickets.

A pending lawsuit seeks to overturn hundreds of millions of dollars in tickets, because the city failed to send people second notices before imposing the fines and late fees.

Instead, the City Council is expected to vote Wednesday to adopt a plan that gives people a new line of appeal.

But people who paid their tickets already won’t get refunds; and the city says most of the tickets were validly issued.
