LA City Council goes after 50,000 outstanding red light fines

LOS ANGELES

The city council is going after about 50,000 drivers who have yet to pay their red light tickets.

The panel voted to continue paying a contractor to track down those violators, and the Los Angeles Police Department will use the contractor's database to collect outstanding fines.

The city council voted to end its red light program on July 31 because of concerns over the safety benefits and the almost $500 price of tickets.
