California Supreme Court to Decide in April Limitations on Red Light Camera Ticket Evidence

California Supreme Court to Decide in April Limitations on Red Light Camera Ticket Evidenceblog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Some of the controversy over what evidence should and should not be allowed in the trials of red light camera ticket trials, may finally be settled. It is rare for the Court of Appeal to hear the appeal of a mere traffic ticket, and even more rare for a traffic ticket case to reach the Supreme Court. So it was big deal in 2012 when California’s highest court agreed to review the lower court’s ruling on a red light camera ticket conviction (People v. Goldsmith). The court has limited its review to the following issues: (1) What testimony, if any, regarding the accuracy and reliability of the automated traffic enforcement system (in this case the specific camera company is ATES) is required as a prerequisite to admission of the ATES-generated evidence? (2) Is the ATES evidence hearsay and, if so, do any exceptions apply? The Supreme Court has placed this case on calendar to be argued Thursday, April 3, 2014. –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
