Short yellow light? Could be enough to dismiss your red light camera ticket

Short yellow light? Could be enough to dismiss your red light camera ticket. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  Recently the City of Los Alamitos announced that one of their camera enforced traffic signals switched from yellow to red faster than state law allows, likely causing hundreds of tickets to be issued incorrectly, some of which have already been tossed out of court.  This is an important reminder to verify the timing of a yellow light should you receive a red light camera ticket in the mail. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers fight their traffic tickets.

Some Drivers Get to Clear Traffic Tickets at Video Kiosks

Some Drivers Get to Clear Traffic Tickets at Video Kiosks –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets. 

Drivers can now clear traffic tickets and in certain cases see a judge face to face using video kiosks located in a few San Antonio grocery stores.

As reported by WOAI.com News, video kiosks connected to the municipal court put people face-to-face with a judge, allowing everyone to skip the hassle of driving down to the courthouse.  The video kiosk allows you to talk to someone immediately at the court and a clerk will first screen a case then bring in a judge to take a plea. Those who use the kiosk will be able to request probation or a driver’s safety course and pay for the ticket at the kiosk.

In light of budget cuts and courtroom closures, many California drivers who are ticketed face considerable wait times to get through to a court clerk whether it is over the phone or in person, and could definitely benefit from traffic ticket video kiosks.-  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Senate Bill 1303 Would Bring Favorable Changes to the Red Light Camera Ticketing Process

September 14, 2012 Leave a comment

Senate Bill 1303 Would Bring Favorable Changes to the Red Light Camera Ticketing Process – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

New bill that is working its way through state Senate would add restrictions to the red light camera ticketing process (big ones), and work in favor of wrongfully ticketed motorists.

The goal of the bill is said to protect the rights of drivers who are erroneously ticketed. The bill, authored by Senator Joe Simitian, would prohibit tickets that are sent out by the police departments requesting information on the identity of the driver in order to have the ticket cleared. See more about this bill on the California Legislative Information website at http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov.-  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

If You Set Off A Red Light Camera, It Doesn’t Necessarily Mean You Will Get A Ticket

If You Set Off A Red Light Camera, It Doesn’t Necessarily Mean You Will Get A Ticket – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Red Light traffic enforcement cameras are set up at intersections to get a clear shot of you running a red light. If the photo isn’t clear enough then the employees viewing the photos may disregard the ticket since they don’t have clear evidence.

The next step if the police feel they have enough evidence is usually to send you a notice asking you to sign a form and mail back to them. At this point if you don’t fill out the form and mail it back then there is no real ticket in the mix. A real ticket isn’t filed with the court till you send back that form identifying yourself as the driver or someone else.

If you are concerned about getting a red light ticket in the mail, you won’t have to worry for too long. If it’s been more than 2 weeks since the time you think you set off the red light camera then chances are you won’t be getting a ticket. Police have slightly more than 2 weeks (15 – days) to issue the ticket otherwise you may be able to get it invalidated. –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Red Light Camera Tickets No Longer Issued In LA City But Still in County

Red Light Camera Tickets No Longer Issued In LA City But Still in County– blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

In July of 2011 the City of Los Angeles chose to shut down their Red Light Traffic Enforcement Cameras set up at various intersections around the city. There has been much confusion since then because there are still cities within the County of Los Angeles that ARE still issuing tickets

You won’t get a ticket from the actual City of Los Angeles anymore but know there are still numerous camera enforced intersections within the county of Los Angeles including Beverly Hills, Inglewood, Van Nuys, and West Hollywood and these cities are still issuing red light camera tickets which are valid and enforceable (although maybe not for long with more and more cities across the state attempting to shut down or suspend their cameras). –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Don’t Wind Up Paying for A Ticket You Didn’t have to in the First Place

Don’t Wind Up Paying for A Ticket You Didn’t have to in the First Place -blog submitted by www.ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  

You don’t want to wind up paying for a ticket when you didn’t have to in the first place do you? This is a topic we have blogged about in the past but it’s important enough to revisit, because too many people receive notices from police departments or out of state camera company that are meant to fish for information, like your driver’s license number, and to get you to tell on yourself (or someone else) for a red light violation.

Either on the notice itself or an attach page, will be blank lines with fields for you to fill in. If you don’t fill out the back of this notice and send it back to the agency requesting the information from you then they won’t have enough to pin the violation on you and a get a real ticket issued to you through the court. Once you give up this information, the information can be used to get a real ticket filed with the courthouse.

Be very suspicious if you don’t the court house listed on the notice. Be wary if you don’t see a due date.  Be careful if you don’t see a fine amount listed.  You could even go so far as to go on the website for the court in the county the violation supposedly occurred in and do a search for the ticket. You could also try calling the court you think the ticket would have been issued in and inquire if there is any record of a ticket being issued to you, most likely there will not be!

Red light camera tickets can be tricky so it doesn’t hurt to get professional help. –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Knowing What Not to Include In A Trial By Declaration Statement Is Just as Important For Successfully Fighting Your Traffic Ticket In The Written Form

Knowing What Not to Include In A Trial By Declaration Statement Is Just as Important For Successfully Fighting Your Traffic Ticket In The Written Form -blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  

 

A Trial by Written Declaration is one of the best ways to get your ticket dismissed and since the average time a judge spends reviewing a Trial by Declaration is only about 5 – 10 minutes, knowing what to include in a Trial by Declaration statement is crucial for successfully fighting your traffic ticket in the written form. It is however just as important to know what not to include. 

 

A Trial by Declaration statement:

 

  • ·         Should not contain lengthy discussion of irrelevant facts
  • ·         Should not bad mouth the officer
  • ·         Should not contain un-professional language
  • ·         Should not contain information about past violations or violations unrelated to the ticket you are currently fighting
  • ·         Should not be handwritten because you want it to be easily read
  • ·         Should avoid admitting guilt
