PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There’s good news for folks who may have seen the flash of a red-light camera last weekend.
The law authorizing red-light cameras expired on Saturday at midnight and Governor Tom Corbett didn’t sign the bill re-authorizing the cameras until Monday evening at 7:30.
This means, for 42.5 hours, red-light cameras were illegal and drivers couldn’t get a ticket.
“In the timeframe from when it was passed to when the governor signed it, the red light violations won’t be processed,” says Philadelphia Parking Authority Deputy Executive Director Corrine O’Connor.
But red-light cameras are legal again, so if you were caught on camera after the Governor signed the bill into law Monday, you’re on your own.
The law re-authorized red-light cameras in Philadelphia through 2017.
