    Default Traffic Camera

    Hi fellows, received a ticket in the mail today for turning on a no red from one of those traffic camera. Because the vehicle is registered to me the ticket came in my name.The violation pictures only show the vehicle not who is driving. Also says in so many words there is no points added,we just want you MONEY.Ok question is if I just pay this and its in my name does it mess with my cdl and do I have to report it to ABF even if I was not the actual driver and no points were issued. I mean how do you explain this to your empoyer?

    You pose a very good question here as we also have those here. I have thought of it like you just asked but curious to see what the answer may be. There are alot of people on this sight so maybe someone can explain.

    I would go to court and talk to the prosecutor. For your own good. He more than likely will reduce it to a non moving violation and then you do not have to report it to ABF. And remember you do not have to report it until if and when you are found guilty of a moving violation.

    Excellent advice, Muler.

    from past experience with traffic cameras if they don't have your mug in the picture, you just say you weren't driving, you are not sure who was driving and they cannot ticket you. I hope this helps.

    Yeah I reviewed the picture they sent and all it shows is the side of the car and then the tail of it turning. Also there is no(no turn on red) sign in the picture. I have two cars that me and my wife drive so who knows who was driving. The ticket was from 7/27 and came on 9/3 and has a court date of 9/9.They say must notify seven days in advance if pleading not guilty(how convenient for them) This whole deal is just a good old new jersey money grab. When I called about it they said this violation shall not result in assessment of motor vehicle points or automotive insurance eligibility points Statue 39:4-81.

    A New Penn friend of mine got 1 in the mail from Brick NJ. His wife entered the intersection on a yellow light. No picture of the driver was taken so they issued the ticket to the registered owner of the vehicle. He also was concerned about it going on his CDL. He was told the same thing that you were told, no points and nothing on his driving record. Just pay the fine.

    It has been a problem here in Albuquerque too. I have seen stories on the news about this exact problem. A guy's brother was driving his car and he got ticketed because he is the registered owner. Never did hear what the outcome was. I think these red light cameras are a bunch of B.S. and here in New Mexico they make it very well known this is all an attempt to get more money for the cities, not to make anyone safer.

    So if registered owners are now resposible for fines......then all driving/DOT fines should be put in company names instead of the name of the driver from now on, correct?
