Alb. Hires Red Light Camera Company to Go After Ticket Scofflaws

From -The city of Albuquerque is hiring the former operator of its red light cameras to go after drivers who have ignored $13 million in outstanding fines. The city's decision to hire Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Redflex Traffic Systems Inc. ends the company's threat to sue the city over its portion of the unpaid fines. The red-light cameras ran for seven years but were shut off last year after voters opposed continuing the program. Redflex argued that its share of the outstanding fines totaled about $4.5. The Albuquerque Journal reports  Redflex will get a share of any money it collects, just as it did when the program was running. About 90 percent of those ticketed paid the fines. But about 100,000 tickets remain unpaid.
