CITY HALL — Chicagoans can apply for their share of the $38.75 million that the City of Chicago will pay to settle claims that it failed to allow motorists to challenge tickets issued by red-light and speed cameras.

Under the settlement approved by the City Council in July, 1.2 million people who paid fines — but didn’t get a chance to contest the 1.5 million citations they received — could get a refund of half of what they paid the city, officials said.

Drivers have until Dec. 11 to file a claim to be eligible for a portion of the settlement, which will be paid out in August 2018, officials said.
