San Diego Red Light Camera Defense Team Report
The report to the courts that resulted in San Diego shutting down their camera program for more than a year.

In 2001, 400 motorists banded together with the Red Light Camera Defense Team to challenge the City of San Diego, California on their red light camera program. They won.
