Red-light scofflaws, you just caught a break.
Philadelphia's red-light cameras were illegal over the weekend, and no tickets generated during that time will be sent to motorists.
The law that authorized the red-light cameras now in use at 20 intersections expired at 12:01 a.m. Saturday. Gov. Corbett did not sign the bill re-authorizing the cameras (and extending their use to Pittsburgh and Philadelphia suburban communities) until Monday evening.
So, if you ran a light in Philadelphia during that period and saw the ominous flash of the camera strobe, relax.
