HollanderThis morning, The Ticket Clinic’s Ted Hollander appeared on CBS12 News in West Palm Beach discussing our favorite topic – red light cameras.  The tickets, which are issued to the car’s owner, not necessarily the driver, are unconstitutional and are merely a way for cities to increase revenue.  Check out the link above to see more of what Ted and The Ticket Clinic have to say.

 

Red Light Camera Tracker: Do You Know Where the Cameras Are?

Monday, May 13th, 2013

At The Ticket Clinic, we are at the forefront of the red light camera issue.  We believe that the cameras are an unconstitutional violation of drivers’ rights that serve only to generate revenue for cash-strapped cities.

If you have received a red light camera citation, you can fight it.  Many people assume that because the ticket does not incur points, there is no harm in paying it.  But paying it means you are admitting guilt and paying a hefty fine.  In Florida, the citations start at $158!  Consider first talking to an experienced traffic ticket attorney.  At The Ticket Clinic, we are at the forefront of red light camera litigation and legislation.  Call us today at 1.800.CITATION.

Keeping an Eye on the Red Light Camera Battle

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

The red light camera fight keeps raging as lawmakers attempt to ban red light cameras.  A recent report by the Miami Herald highlighted the debate after a bill to halt red light camera programs narrowly passed in a House committee vote in the Florida legislature last week.

The article highlights some interesting statistics, namely that the State of Florida collected $51 million in revenue last year from the red light camera program with no clear reports indicating that the cameras actually make intersections safer.

At The Ticket Clinic, we have been leading the fight against red light cameras in Florida and California.  If you received a red light camera ticket and have questions about whether you can fight it, consider talking to an experienced traffic ticket attorney.  The Ticket Clinic has defended over 1 million traffic tickets.  Call us today at 1.800.CITATION.

Are Red Light Cameras Really Working?

Friday, February 1st, 2013

It is no secret that The Ticket Clinic has been leading the fight against red light cameras.  But constitutional issues aside, are these cameras really working?

For example, an article last month in the Tampa Bay Times highlighted a concern about red light cameras that has been raised nationwide – rear-end collisions have increased at intersections with cameras.  So this begs the question – are red light cameras really making our streets safer or are they simply a way for cash-strapped cities to increase revenue?

While this issueis being hotly litigated in courts in Florida and nationwide, what do you do if you get a red light camera ticket?  Many people think that because these tickets do not incur points and do not appear on a driving record, there is no harm in paying it.  People also mistakenly believe that because there is a photo or video, they must be guilty.  But there are many ways to attack red light camera tickets and the equipment used to issue these tickets.  Before you simply pay the fine, which starts at $158, consider talking to a lawyer.  The Ticket Clinic is leading the fight against red light cameras.  If you have questions about a red light camera ticket, call us at 1.800.CITATION.

Red Light Camera Tickets for Making Right-Hand Turns on Red

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

At The Ticket Clinic, we are constantly fighting the battle against red light camera tickets.  You may already know this but if bears repeating – you can also get a red light camera ticket for making a right turn on red if you don’t come to a complete stop before turning.  However, the law allows drivers to make a right turn on red if the turn is both permissible (i.e. there is no sign saying “No Turn on Red”) and “reasonable and prudent.”

The vague “reasonable and prudent” language, which is entirely subjective, can work in your favor since people will differ on what they consider to be reasonable and prudent.  A good traffic ticket lawyer may be able to help you fight your red light camera ticket.  If you received a red light camera ticket for making a right turn on red, before you simply pay the fine, which starts at $158, consider talking to a traffic ticket lawyer.  The Ticket Clinic is leading the charge against red light cameras throughout Florida and California.

The Fight Against Red Light Cameras

Friday, November 16th, 2012

Red light cameras are facing scrutiny nationwide as challengers highlight the fact that the cameras are merely a way for desperate cities to balance their budgets by bringing in revenue.  In fact, studies have shown an increase in rear-end collisions in intersections with red light cameras.

Today, the matter is being heavily litigated in courtrooms all over Florida and the cameras’ future remains uncertain.  In the meantime, what do you do if you get a red light ticket in the mail?

Many people think that because a red light camera ticket does not incur points and does not appear on their driving record, there is no harm in paying it.  People also mistakenly believe that because there is a photo or video, they must be guilty.  Rather, there are many ways to attack red light camera tickets and the equipment used to issue these tickets.  Before you simply pay the fine, which starts at $158, consider talking to a lawyer.  The Ticket Clinic is leading the charge against red light cameras throughout Florida and California.
