    I recently received a red light ticket in the mail for a left turn on a red arrow at New Hyde Park Road at Marcus Avenue. I was behind a Nassau County PD ambulance which turned ahead of me. The height of the ambulance prevented me from seeing the signal turning red. The photo appears to show the ambulance also turning through the red signal while blocking my view. Do I have a valid defense to contest this summons, because I couldn’t see the signal turn red while I was following an official vehicle that also made the left turn on red in front of me?

    Thanks.

    I’m curious… has anyone won a case at a hearing for no signage??

    Our ticket was for right turn on red (husband braked & looked left) on RT 110 and Conklin Street, southbound.

    Thanks!

    I just received a ticket for not stopping for a red light and making a right turn. Just a heads up but as of April 1st, 2013 there is an Administration fee of $30 in addition to the $50 fine. I wonder why they need $30 for administration fees? I would think my outrageous Suffolk county taxes or the fine itself handle the administration fees?

    Regardless, its now $80…

    BTW, this was at RT111 and 495.

      Mosley,

      Thanks for the heads up. Nassau County first started the “administrative fee”. The fee is a way for the county to raise more money.

    If this red light program is treated like a parking ticket, what happens if a rental car is caught going through a red light. Does the rental company get the ticket or the driver? If the driver gets the ticket why does a private owner which did not commit this heinous crime get ticketed? If the offender does not have a valid registration do they come after you? This is a revenue generator for Suffolk county that all. Being an out of state owner which did not commit this crime I refuse to donate to Suffolk County. If everyone rolls on this and does not fight this where will it end? What will it take for the people to stand up and refuse this intrusion?

      Carl,

      Yes, the rental car company will get the ticket and, under its lease agreement, will then bill you for it. The owner gets it because that’s how the legislation was draft and gets around the due process considerations that ordinarily would be involved with a traffic ticket. In terms of your decision to refuse to pay the ticket, I would recommend that you pay it (but of course you’ll do what you want).

      Thanks for sharing your feedback.

    My wife received a red light ticket for a violation at Route 111 @ 495. I was driving the vehicle and would like to fight the summons (right on red). Can I appear? Or is my wife required to appear as the registered owner?

    Thanks,

      Alan,

      Your wife must fight it but they may allow you to appear for her. Make sure that you came to a complete stop. Otherwise, you are guilty of an illegal right on red.

        Thank you Matthew. Do I need to call the court to make arrangements? I’d like to appear, as I was the driver (alone in the vehicle) and it is much easier for me to be there.

          Alan,

          No, your wife plead not guilty and, on her court date, you show up as her witness (and, if she doesn’t attend) and representative. I would bring a notarized letter showing that you have her permission.

    Last night on my way home I was flashed by a camera while making a right turn. I am sure that I made a complete stop. Is there a time limit as to how long one must stop without getting ticketed?
    Also, my dad got a ticket at the same location a few weeks ago. While reviewing the video we noticed the distortion of the street line markings at the point in the video in which he supposedly turned without stopping, should we fight this?

    I know its a long shot but I made a left in the intersection on the LIE service road and Ronkonkoma Ave. I saw the Camera flash. The intersection is near the train station. I was in a situation where the car in front of me was going very slow and the car behind me was close to me cause he wanted to make the light. The end result was the slow car made the light and me trying to make sure the car behind me did not hit me went through the light as it was red while making the left on to Ronlonkoma ave. And to make things worse i missed my train. No defense right.

    The Red light program is run by Lockheed Martin.

    Listen closely and you can hear the sound of the robotic police state ratcheting up. Unlike fallible human cops, who have some discretion in their actions, the robocam/computer/super cop dispenses mechanized justice with unrelenting speed and accuracy. Maybe I’m old fashioned, but even if I deserve the roboticket I receive from an unthinking, unfeeling computerocracy, I feel the loss of the human touch deeply and resent the punishment much more than the $50 fine might suggest. We’re in trouble when the state benefits from its citizens losses.

    Location: NY347 @ Mark Tree Rd – West Bound
    Received a ticket for turning right on red.
    There is a sign that says “camera recording” however, there is no sign of “NO TURN ON RED” at this intersection. There is infact two signs “NO STOPPING ANYTIME”, one sign is clearly visible in the photographs and the video.
    This is confusing. Should the driver follow – “no stopping anytime?” Can this confusion be disputed?

    • Matthew Weiss August 15, 2012 4:31 pm Reply

      Mike,

      This confusion likely won’t help you. If you failed to make a full stop (all four wheels stopped moving), then you actually violated the law. If not, then plead not guilty and fight this one (even though, in my opinion, the sign issue isn’t compelling).
