Kansas City police warn of speeding ticket scam
KANSAS CITY (AP) — Kansas City police are warning people to ignore emails that claim the motorists were ticketed after being caught speeding by a red light camera.
Police say it's likely the emails are part of a scam targeting motorists whose GPS information has been leaked.
The department no longer issues tickets from red light cameras. The city suspended its red light camera program in November 2013 after several court cases against them were filed.
The department also notes the city's Municipal Court doesn't send emails about citations or court dates. The court responds to emails only if they are initiated by citizens.
The Missouri Supreme Court issued new guidelines to re-establish the red-light camera programs but Kansas City has not yet done so.
