Florida judge: red light tickets unconstitutional

One judge in Florida rules red light tickets written by police are unconstitutional.

His reasoning is that the difference in fines between red light camera tickets and red light cop tickets violates the Equal Protection Clause of the US Constitution.

This almost certainly exceeds the federal Supreme Court's understanding of the Clause. The state is planning to appeal the judge's ruling.

Still, he's going to be a really popular judge for a while.
