COLLIER COUNTY, Fla - It's your money, and if you're a red light ticket holder in the State of Florida, you could be getting your cash back!

Florida cities that installed red light cameras before the state approved them, could have to return millions of dollars in fines.

But Collier County isn't one of them.

The State Supreme Court, has put the brakes on red light camera systems that were installed before 2010.

They say those cities or counties owe drivers part of their money back because the state hadn't approved the red light systems in the first place.

Collier County however already settled a lawsuit with drivers back in 2012, so Thursday's decision won't affect them.

Collier County first installed red light cameras in April 2009, and had collected more than one million dollars in fines before July 2010.

That's when state law made cameras legal.

More than 1,000 drivers then brought a lawsuit against the county, asking for their money back.
Collier County and American Traffic Solutions settled a class-action lawsuit in September 2012, and agreed to give $16.16 in refunds for each ticket.

The two lead plaintiffs received more. 

The red light cameras were removed from Collier County intersections in February 2013, after studies showed they did not make a significant impact in curbing accidents.
