The Los Angeles Police Commission will not renew the contract with the firm that operates the red-light cameras in the city. The information collected by the cameras will not be readily available to the police. The officers that attend the court hearings will not have the evidence required by the court to prove the violation. For a red-light camera trial the cases would most likely be dismissed. However officials explain that there will be fines and records of the ticket. If the fine is not paid, an additional $300 will be added to the ticket cost. If the person receives another citation it will appear on the record. Also a red-light camera citation will appear in a background check. The Los Angeles City Council voted last summer to end the program and stopped issuing citations at the end of July according to the Los Angeles Times.
