Default Red Light Photo Ticketing Could Be Illegal

Camera Fraud Article: Red Light Photo Ticketing Could Be Illegal


A decision handed down by the Federal Highway Administration(FHWA) will be sending shock waves through the insidious network of red light cameras across the country. Last month they ruled that the “enforcement lines,” which are the lines used by automated ticketing companies to determine a violation, are illegal and potentially unsafe. Could this mean that every red light photo ticket in Arizona could get thrown out based on that ruling?


Michael Kielsky was asked about it on Channel 5 News on Tuesday night and his answer was, “it might.”


Kielsky still offers his unique, $95 Photo Radar Legal Defense to Arizona motorists.


TheNewspaper.com featured an article about it on Monday, which describes an Tucson, AZ motorist who brought the issue before the FHWA:


When Arizona motorist Dianne Patterson asked FHWA whether the city of Tucson violated the law by using violation lines, FHWA’s Acting Director of Transportation Operations, Paul Pisano, said it did.

“The Manual on Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) does not contain any provisions for the use of transverse lines to indicate the legal limits of an intersection for red light violation purposes,” Pisano wrote. “The reason is that, under the provisions of the Uniform Vehicle Code, which is the basis of the motor vehicle laws of most states, the stop line, or crosswalk if there is no stop line, defines the point beyond which a red light violation has occurred.”


This decision could have major ramifications nationwide for the legality of red light photo enforcement.


The Cameras Are Coming Down
