Red Light Camera Tickets
What Is A Red Light Camera Ticket?
Many counties, cities and towns in the Greater St. Louis, Missouri area have begun using red light cameras to issue tickets to motorists that run red lights. The camera photographs the license plate and then a ticket is mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle.
What if I was not driving the vehicle at the time the Red Light Camera ticket was issued?
You should contact the court of the jurisdiction that issued the ticket or a traffic attorney to find out how to proceed. You should not simlpy ignore the ticket!
What happens if I don't pay the fine for a Red Light Camera ticket?
It depends on the municipality that issues the ticket. Many jurisdictions count Red Light Camera violations as infractions, meaning there are no points issued on your driver's license and a Failure to Appear (FTA) will not be issued for your arrest; however, some jurisdictions may issue a warrant for your arrest if you fail to pay. Other municiplaities have recently had their red light camera programs shut down by the courts.
Even if you do no receive a warrant or points on your license for failing to pay a Red Light Camera ticket the balance will probably be sent to collections which can harm your credit score.
