BROOKLYN - Three drivers are planning to file a lawsuit against the city over red light cameras.

The drivers, who were given $50 tickets, say they were caught by yellow lights that were too short. The Department of Transportation says that yellow lights should last three seconds, no matter if the intersection is photo-enforced.

The drivers are asking that their tickets be refunded and that the red light camera program be shut down.
