SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls businessman wants the city and Redflex Traffic Systems to pay back the money collected through their red-light traffic cameras.
Redflex also operates Sioux City's red-light camera system.
The Argus Leader reports that I.L. Wiedermann, who sued the city over the automated system's constitutionality in 2006, appeared in court on Monday with his lawyer to ask Judge Kathleen Caldwell to turn his case into a class action for a third time.
The cameras were shut down in June after Caldwell ruled that the city violates state law when it issues civil penalties for the criminal act of red light running.
About 20,000 vehicle owners had received $86 tickets since May 2004.
