ST. LOUIS (AP) – St. Louis is giving back $5.6 million to motorists who paid red-light camera tickets since early last year.

The city announced the give-back program on Wednesday. It applies to red-light camera tickets paid between Feb. 11, 2014, and Aug. 19 of this year. More than 56,000 people paid $100 fines for those violations.

The decision follows a Missouri Supreme Court ruling on Aug. 19 that struck down the city’s red-light camera ordinance.

The city of St. Louis says those who paid the fine will receive a check in the mail within 15 business days. Those who believe they are due a check but don’t get one will need to appear at the Municipal Court with photo identification.
