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.
"Wish I could rate them 10 stars..took care of ticket,cheaper than what the ticket would had cost, no points, no school, I am blown away, fantastic job done by these guys at a very reasonable price, sorry I can't give details because I am ashamed of my stupidity, luckily I learned my lesson and it was only a trap." Roberto C. - "I will use you time and time agian. Have recommended you to several family members and friends thank you so much I am very very happy with the outcome but I don't plan on getting any more tickets! Again thank you Ticket Clinic." Lisette R. - "They are just the best... From the people answering the phone (yes actual well spoken and courteous people) to the assistant that attended me when I visit their offices at South Dixie Highway and 22nd." Jamie C. - "The convenience is my favorite part! Entered my ticket online and paid. My ticket was $200+ ..They went to court for me and my ticket was dismissed. Emailed me confirming everything was taken care of and that was that! I do believe this is a case by case basis. I have a very good driving record so I'm happy I didn't have to waste my time with this. Highly recommend!" Kathy V. - "I just called them on the phone. I provided the information regarding my ticket which I felt was not my fault in an accident I was involved in. They took care of it and I didn't have to show up to court. No points, no ticket. Well worth what they charged me." George A. -
