I would make my daughter pay it.
Did she not go through a red light?
Whose car is it?
Make her pay it........
Is the ticket applicable to the driver, or the vehicle?
If they have a photo of the perp, you're probably out of luck.
If the ticket is to the vehicle, same.
If you pay a lawyer, you can probably beat it.
As long a judges and lawyers are making money, everybody is happy.
Good luck. In most places people haven’t succeeded in fighting them. If the law in your jurisdiction requires the city to prove who the driver is, then you may be successful in showing that they haven’t done that.
On the other hand, in many jurisdictions a red-light-camera ticket doesn’t get reported against the driver/registered owner precisely because of that reason, so there are no points, increased insurance rates, etc. associated with the ticket (I suppose an insurance company could ask about red light tickets on the license plate).
As they say - make her pay it.
Explain to her calmly but firmly that “We don’t run Red Lights Dear”.
We don’t need an emotional scene.
Make them drag the camera in to testify since it is the ticketing officer..
We got them outlawed in MN (unconstitutional)..
If she ran it, shes gonna hafta pay it.
You could get the ACLU in on the deal. I think they are the ones that got them removed in Minnesota.
If the vid shows she ran the light, pay it. If not, schedule a court appearance and present the video. If you are in the right, they are easy to get thrown out because the incident is recorded.
She should pay it and not run red lights again. It’s a good lesson without the really painful and potentially fatal results that can come from running red lights.
...I still tease her about making a "Tina-stop" ...
‘beat it’ with cash... or check/money order in an envelop
if you live in a small town, a better question would be who wanted a red-light cam in the town?
Lol, my wife has received several of those.
...and we paid the ticket ...
I thought those Red Light Tickets were CIVIL not CRIMINAL concerns.
If there is nothing the State can do to you, ignore it.
Is she being falsly accused? If not pay it and be done with it.
"Sorry kiddo, get your checkbook out." Guilty!
