Judge shreds class action vs Safespeed, IL govt officials over red light camera bribes, because plaintiffs ran red lights

A federal judge has curbed a class action racketeering lawsuit seeking refunds of more than $100 million in fines generated from a network of red light cameras in Chicago’s southwest suburbs, because, the judge said, even if the cameras were installed as a result of a conspiracy built on bribes and grift, the ticketed motorists still committed the traffic offenses for which they were fined.
