Chicago's examination of red-light cameras grows

Posted: Updated:

The investigation into whether Chicago's red-light camera system resulted in traffic tickets to motorists who didn't deserve them is widening.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports in a story published Sunday that Mayor Rahm Emanuel spokeswoman Kelley Quinn says the number of tickets that are being reviewed by city officials has increased from 9,000 to 16,000.

The acknowledgment that more tickets are being looked comes weeks after a Chicago Tribune investigation revealed unexplained spikes in the number of tickets issued at several intersections where the cameras were set up. The city's inspector general has launched an investigation at the request of several aldermen.

The mayor has promised to give motorists an extra chance to appeal tickets and to refund any of the $100 tickets that were issued improperly.
