Default Florida: Jury Trial Set In Case Against Florida Traffic Camera Fees

Full article at https://www.thenewspaper.com/news/65/6524.asp

Convenience fees for red light camera ticket payments becomes subject of $29 million federal class action lawsuit in Florida.

"A federal jury may have the opportunity to decide whether American Traffic Solutions (ATS, now Verra Mobility) has been illegally tacking on fees to red light camera tickets in Florida. US District Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks on Monday set a tentative March 19 date for a trial in the case against the Arizona company over the imposition of fees that were never authorized by the legislature.

Florida law specifically prohibits paying red light camera companies according to the number of tickets issued. Attorneys Bret L. Lusskin, Scott D. Owens and Keith J. Keogh launched a class action suit in June challenging the five percent "convenience" fees imposed on motorists for each photo ticket paid with a credit card."
