Exclamation Red Light Camera Wrongly Tickets Woman Who Was Out Of State

NMA Article: Red Light Camera Wrongly Tickets Woman Who Was Out Of State

rlc-chicago

In another story that ticket camera companies will insist is an isolated incident (despite a new incident seemingly surfacing each week), a Peoria, Illinois woman was sent a ticket that should have gone to another driver.


WMBD/WYZZ TV has the story:


A Chicago traffic camera could cost you hundreds of dollars. It did for Peorian Casandra Davis, who wrote ‘We Hear You’ after getting tickets for something she says she didn’t do. Her ticket charged her $100 for running a red light in Chicago. The only problem is Davis was in Tennessee.


A red-light camera caught a picture of the car in action. The license plates look almost identical, with the exception of one letter. Plus, Davis drives a silver Impala, and the car in the photo is a red Buick.


Surely if she presented the city with proof of their mistake, they would immediately remedy the situation and apologize, right? Maybe not:


Davis says she called Chicago’s Revenue Department and sent proof, but instead of correcting the problem, Chicago increased her ticket to $200. Now Davis is worried she’s driving around with a bad driving record that’s not hers.


As usual, pressure from the media is the only thing that seems to force cities to fix their errors:


After we called the Department of Revenue we got Davis’ ticket overturned. Representatives say they confused some letters on the license plate.
