Lawyers plan class action challenge to speed camera program.

SOUTH CAROLINA — TheNewspaper.com reports class action attorneys have set their sights on a South Carolina town that set up a freeway speed camera in defiance of state law.

The news report says: “since August, the town of Ridgeland has allowed the private company iTraffic to operate a speed camera system to mail tickets worth $133 to $300 each to the owners of vehicles photographed as they pass through a tiny stretch of Interstate 95. The fully automated system is housed in a recreational vehicle that is usually concealed behind a bridge. When state legislators heard of the town’s plan, they unanimously enacted a law to prohibit the use of speed cameras.”
