If You Ran A Red Light At Island And Lindbergh From February To April, You Might Be Getting Some Money
Continuing the run of things the PPA is finally doing right, they are now refunding fines paid for running the red light at Island Ave. and Lindbergh Blvd. According to Philly.com, the PPA installed a red-light-camera system at that intersection, but didn’t tell motorists about it (a 60-day warning period is required), so the $100 fines paid by motorists for violations between February 11 and April 13 are being refunded. And to take a brief look inside of our relationship with the PPA: “Of 13,459 violations issued during the 60-day period, about 8,000 involved fines paid by motorists.” That’s a whole lot of violations and a pretty rough pay-percentage. But fear not, if you received a ticket there and still didn’t pay it, the fine is reduced to a warning.
We’re not sure what’s going on that is making the traffic law gods smile down upon us all, but we hope it continues.
