Irvine Red Light Camera Attorney
Red Light Camera Lawyer in Newport Beach & Surrounding Areas
Red light cameras are triggered to take a picture when a vehicle passes over a sensor in the intersection when the light is red. The camera takes pictures of the vehicle’s front license place and the driver. A citation is then mailed to the vehicle’s registration owner. Unless you fight the ticket, the traffic violation can go on your driving record—causing your insurance to go up. Since Irvine works off California’s point system, additional tickets could result in hefty fines and lost driving privileges. If you have been charged with a red-light violation, contact our Irvine red light camera lawyers today for a case evaluation. We have over 25 years of experience helping drivers in Irvine and surrounding areas.

Defenses for Red Light Camera Charges
If you were not the one driving your vehicle when the ticket was issued, you have the right to fill out an affidavit claiming you were not the one driving when the violation occurred. The California law states that the driver who is cited for the traffic violation is the one liable for the ticket, not necessarily the vehicle’s owner. When you receive the photos taken by the red-light camera device, it is vital to check if the driver bears any likeness to you and if the license plate number can be read clearly.
There are some defenses for a red-light camera ticket. Was the photo on the ticket blurry or was someone else driving your vehicle? Did it come from the court and was it even your vehicle at all? Fighting that red-light camera ticket can result in a dismissal, therefore saving you money, your insurance and driving record. It also helps to identify if the device was working properly on the day the citation was issued. The prosecution must also present the camera’s photos showing the vehicle’s license plate and driver.
If the photos are not clear, you can consider challenging the photo’s clarity to argue that the evidence is not convincing enough to convict you. If you ran the light to avoid a serious accident or harm to others, you could make that argument.
