Does anyone know....

Who I contact to contest one of these dumb red light photo enforcement tickets?

It's on a car that hasn't run in over a year (which I finally sold a few month ago....to a red light runner, evidently). I contacted city information and was told to call 'Neighborhood Integrity.' Does that sound right to anyone? Seems kinda weird to me.

Anyway, the photo enforcement place is located out of Arizona, and I assume contacting them would be a waste, not to mention there's no number anywhere on there.

Long story short, if I can't get this removed, I'm starting a PAC.

  1. Sounds like you might just have to be before Judge Martha "Bitter" Ritter. The city has contracted to her to hear these types of cases. Good luck....!

  2. Do you have a bill of sale on the vehicle? If you have not already done this, you need to file a vehicle transfer notification. This removes your liability from such things. There may be a time limit on that.... not sure.

    Check out the following FAQ that is on the cor.net site:

  3. and for the record..... red light cameras that are run by 3rd parties and that result in civil penalties are complete and utter bullshit (even if they are supervised by RPD officers). Just reading that FAQ makes me see red.

    Your information is wrong.

  5. @last anonymous - before making such an emphatic statement, you might want to check your facts out with the city or Judge Ritter, herself - last I heard, Martha Ritter IS one of the judges who hears these cases on behalf of the city.

  6. Destiny, please pay for the ticket and think of it as your civic duty, even though you didn't deserve to get the ticket or deserve to pay for the ticket. Just think, that fine money can go to pay for the "Art Park" or the "Environmental Park" and help offset some of the multi-million dollar losses.

  7. Truth Sqaud - Your information is outdated and incorrect.

  8. @last anonymous - call city hall or call the judge - you'll get the confirmation you need. A friend of mine went before her recently. xxoo.

  9. On the citation you received in the mail you will find how to set a hearing to contest the citation.

    As posted earlier, bring a copy of your bill of sale to the hearing.

    There are three hearing officers, of whom one is Ms. Ritter. They are paid from the City's share of fines collected - about $30.00 per hour.

  10. Call the police station. You will get the info you need to get out of the ticket

  11. Destiny, as I recall, you were gung-ho for these cameras. Obviously, the only threat to public safety here is some form of identity theft. At least they were caught on camera.

    I hope you realize the folly of these cameras through your summary conviction. The experience of having to spend your resources to deal with this circumstance is be-fitting of anyone who thinks these cameras are anything but another back door tax by a greedy municipal management.
