Red Light Camera Ticket Defenses - The Right To Confront Your Accuser

Have you recently opened your mailbox to find a red light camera speeding ticket from the Oswell Street and Bernard Street Lane intersection or another Bakersfield red light camera location? When this occurs, many drivers think there is no way to prove their innocence, but these tickets can be successfully challenged under a number of different defenses.

One of those is a constitutional defense under the right to confront your accusers. The company that installs the red light cameras and has a contract with the city to run them are also the ones that attest to their camera's accuracy. There have been several cases, one of them out of KernCounty, where it was determined that the due process rights of the driver would be violated by not being allowed to confront the employee.

Other possible defenses include:

If you receive a photo ticket in the mail, don't immediate think you must pay it. These tickets are successfully challenged in court all the time and many result in a complete dismissal of the case.
