5 Ways to Fight a Red Light Traffic Ticket [Video]

Posted September 5, 2012 in by


Traffic cameras seem to be everywhere, watching for any opportunity to harpoon drivers with expensive tickets. The spy cameras have generated multiple millions of dollars in traffic fines in many states and municipalities, but the technology is imperfect. Many drivers don’t realize there are ways to challenge these automated traffic cops.

Lawyers.com Editor-in-Chief Larry Bodine outlines five things you should check if you receive a red light camera ticket:

  • Is your car the vehicle shown in the photo?
  • Does the photo show you driving the car?
  • Did you receive the ticket in a timely manner?
  • Do the license plates match your car?
  • Were there warning signs posted at the intersection?


If the answer to any of the questions above is “no,” you may have grounds for challenging the ticket.
