Victorville still has 10 red light cameras and this upsets driver Mike Curran who claims they are illegal. He says his ticket came from Redflex in Arizona, not from law enforcement. NBC4's Inland Empire Reporter Craig Feigener explains what's at stake here.
The infraction carried a $490 fine and when Curran inspected the ticket he found that it was issued by an out-of-state company Redflex with no imput from Victorville police officers.
Curran launched a class action lawsuit on the grounds that Victorville cannot hire a private company to do police work. The cameras' owner, the Redflex Group, is headquartered in Phoenix. The company spent more than $146,000 installing the Victorville cameras and it made its money by issuing the tickets.
