For a second time, the City of Chicago has extended its contract with the red light camera vendor at the center of a scandal.

Redflex Travel Systems reportedly gave free trips to a former city official who oversaw the deal.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel then barred the company from competing for a new contract.

But the city has now renewed the deal to allow for time to select a new vendor.
