Default Red Light Camera

Hey all, need some advice, just got a notice of violation from Baton Rouge, of running a red light.

Question is, can I fight this, do I just not pay it or just pay and forget about it. What are the implications for not paying it?

According to the camera, I was just crossing into the intersection as the light changed.

Stinks to get a request for payment, and I am guilty until proven innocent, and if I pay am admitting guilt.

Fight it? Seriously? Pay the $25 and be done with it. Unless you think the camera was lying-you're guilty as charged. Sheesh.

I think traffic cameras are BS. Were you driving the vehicle? Can they ID you in the pic? What if your buddy borrowed your truck? But, just as well send them your money with a nice note telling them to choke on it.

Wow Lafayette it's 25 all day everyday. And it doesn't go on your record-so no insurance hikes.

I'm pretty sure it's a good bit more for running a red light. Got me once. Close to $100 I believe.

No Picture of who was driving the car, at least to me, this is a case of Guilty until proven innocent.

It's a civil fine, not criminal. It won't go on your record or affect insurance rates. However, the outstanding fine can be turned over to collections which could have an effect on your credit score.

You could appeal, but it would be out of principle only if your time is worth more than the savings. It's a messed up system. Talk to your local officials if they are considering these cameras and convince them otherwise.

I got a speeding ticket in NOLA, after going back and forth whether or not to pay up, I just paid the $120. My number one reason I paid it is because if you are parked curbside with an unpaid ticket they can boot your car. Thats a big *** headache and I park in NOLA a lot curbside. I've been going to Saints games since 09 parking for free curbside instead of paying $30-$50 a game, I think I'n ahead of the game.

By the way, if you drive a pickup truck drive around with your tailgate down, they can't get the license plate that way.

Houston spent millions of dollars on the cameras then after only being around a few weeks they were pulled.

They have no real proof to give you a ticket. Because Think of this way. can you see a red light in the picture they send you..... No so they have no proof that you ran a red light?
No proof no money lol

Default Don't think there's anything they can do to you

if you don't pay it. My MIL had several from the Lafayette area and never sent it in and hasn't had any issues with it. She said it said "If you want to pay this fine", LOL. If it were me I would probably send the payment, but that is a lot.

I heard it will go on your credit report if not paid.

In Lafayette they will threaten to refer the account to a collection agency...and that will affect your credit if they follow through.
