Have you ever opened a piece of mail, only to discover that you were caught on a traffic camera running a red light or speeding?  Even though it might seema that a photograph is the ultimate form of evidence, there are still ways to dispute it.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU RECEIVE A CAMERA TICKET?

If you open your mail and note that your car was photographed running a red light, the first thing you should do is look carefuly at the ticket.  Check the date, time, and location and determine whether or not it was you driving the car.

Take note of what section you are being accused of violating.  Make sure that if your penalites are listed in the code section, that the code section violations match the fines assessed on your ticket.

Check for any dates and further instructions.  Remember to abide by any specified dates.  If you miss your window to pay, your fines could almost double.  If you wait too long, your license could be suspended.

HOW CAN YOU DISPUTE A TRAFFIC CAMERA TICKET?

If you have determined that you were not the one driving your car at the time the ticket was taken,  then you have reasonable cause to fight it.
