Red-Light Cameras: The Trojan Horse

http://www.lewrockwell.com

For two decades the insurance industry and ticket camera merchants have unsuccessfully tried to make photo radar a fixture of American Life. With the exception of a few cities dominated by cranks, social engineers, and nursing home residents, photo radar just couldn't disguise its image for what it really is, a device to milk motorists. The savior came in the form of the red Light Camera.

A big misconception about these camera tickets is that they are moving violations. They aren't! They are ordinance violations. That is why they don't go against your driving record. One way to fight these tickets is to simply tear it up and toss it in the trash! Since it does not come certified, they can not prove you got it. To give it to you certified, they have to pay a process server. If you live in the county of the offense, you are likely to get served. If you live out of county, or better yet, out of state, they are most likely not going to send a process server. It would cost more to send the server than the money they would get. If you do not pay, all they can do is sue you for the money. Here is a great article with options on how to beat them at their camera game: http://www.businessweek.com/autos/content/jan2006/bw20060102_274423.htm

My husband and I got a red light ticket about a year ago because of a similar situation. We were following a short box truck and weren't able to see the yellow light change from down on our motorcycle, and that intersection has incredibly short yellow lights. Running that light could have been VERY dangerous to us since we were on a motorcycle. I do agree, they put revenue over safety and it's just WRONG.
