Red Light Camera Violations

Red light cameras and red light camera violations are becoming more prevalent. It seems that every month I get more phone calls from people who receive a notice of violation on a red light camera.

Sometimes people call claiming that they were turning right at the red light. Although there is a general requirement to stop at all red lights, after stopping you may make a right hand turn unless otherwise prohibited buy a sign or other traffic control device at the intersection. That is why the law allowing for red light cameras specifically says that "a traffic citation may not be issued for failure to stop at a red light if the driver is making a right hand turn."

If you are a loved one has been issued a notice of violation from a red light camera and want to fight it then you must take it to court. To have your day in court, follow the instructions on the notice. Most of the ones I have seen instruct you to do nothing. When you do nothing the government will mail you a citation. The potential fine will be increased. However you can now take that case to court. However, as I stated in my Dunnellon red light camera blog, once you are in court there has been a problem with the evidence needed to impose a fine and red light camera cases are being dismissed across the state. This of course does not mean that the government will not eventually fix the problem.
