$1.3M in unclaimed refunds from Jefferson red-light cameras
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Officials are urging Louisiana drivers to find out if they're owed a refund through Jefferson Parish's discontinued red light camera program.
The state treasurer's office released a statement Monday, saying there $1.3 million worth of refund checks that were never cashed.
Those who were ticketed by a Redflex camera in unincorporated Jefferson Parish between 2007 and 2010 were supposed to receive a refund as a result of a court settlement last year.
However, it's likely many drivers didn't get the checks or haven't cashed them.
Treasurer John Kennedy says more than 50,000 people are owed money from the tickets.
Officials say most people will get a $23.18 refund.
Residents can search for missing money online at latreasury.com or call (888) 925-4127 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
