CHICAGO (WLS) -- The City of Chicago's red light camera program has been found to be constitutional. The ruling was made Friday in Cook County's Circuit Court.

A suit claimed the city violated its own laws by failing to give violators appropriate notice before issuing late fees and other penalties.

"We are pleased that the court dismissed this lawsuit and found the red light automated enforcement program to be legal and constitutionally sound," Steve Patton, Corporation Counsel, said in a statement.

Chicago's camera program was implemented in 2003.
