Red Light Ticket
The Red Light programs has been one of the “innovative” ways local governments have recently used to “create revenue” These programs involve the county placing cameras at various intersections throughout Nassau County. These cameras are utilized to ticket drivers that allegedly fail to stop at red lights.
Currently, the infraction follows the vehicle and not the actual driver. In other words, the person to whom the vehicle is registered is liable for the fine, not the person who is actually accused of running the light! While the registered owner is not subject to points on his license, the fines seem to be increasing as local governments have discovered a new way to collect revenue.
