Florida Lawsuit Challenges Traffic Camera Company

A recently-filed class action lawsuit alleges that a traffic camera company was given too much authority to issue traffic violations caught on their cameras in Orange Park and Green Cove Springs, Florida. The lawsuit was filed by two Florida drivers who were ticketed due to the cameras used by American Traffic Solutions Inc., one of the largest traffic camera operators in the country. According to the filing, the duty of ticketing drivers should be in the hands of law enforcement, not a contract company. The lawsuit was filed on Oct. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida on behalf of anyone ticketed by the company dating back to July 2010.
