Are Red Light Cameras Really Working?

February 1, 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 issues 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.
