St. Louis is giving back $5.6 million to drivers who paid red-light camera tickets since early last year.

The city announced the give-back program on Wednesday. It applies to red-light camera tickets paid between Feb. 11, 2014, and Aug. 19 of this year. More than 56,000 people paid $100 fines for those violations.

The decision follows a Missouri Supreme Court ruling on Aug. 19 that struck down the city's red-light camera ordinance.

The City Council in Kansas City is considering changes to the city's red-light camera law that will try to address concerns raised in a recent Missouri Court of Appeals ruling.

The City Council's Public Safety Committee endorsed the changes Monday. The Kansas City Star reports that if the council approves the proposed changes, the new law would take effect 10 days after that and red-light camera enforcement could resume.
