CHICAGO — Mayor Rahm Emanuel quietly made changes to city code involving red-light and speed camera tickets shortly after a lawsuit was filed against the city.

The lawsuit accused the city of failing to issue a second notice of violation prior to a determination of liability against drivers and not allowing a 25-day grace period before assessing late fees.

According to the Sun Times reports, weeks after the lawsuit was filed, the city removed the requirement for a second notice and started abiding by the 25-day grace period.
