$1.3 million in red light camera fine refunds now in State Treasury
BATON ROUGE - Motorists who paid a ticket through the Jefferson Parish red light camera program are advised to the check the Louisiana Department of the Treasury’s Unclaimed Property Program to see if they are owed a refund.
State Treasurer John Kennedy says thousands of motorists were ticketed in the red light camera program. Now, a class action litigation has resulted in refunds, though not every motorist cashed the check.
"We just deposited nearly $1.3 million in uncashed refund checks from the class action settlement into our Unclaimed Property Program," said Treasurer Kennedy. "More than 50,000 people are owed money from red light camera tickets. Their names have been loaded into our database. Call us or search online to see if you're owed money.”
People who are now owed money either paid a ticket or paid the ticket plus added fees after appearing in court. Most people are entitled to a refund of $23.18, according to the State Treasury.
