wanted to share this to my fellow drivers
If the cameras are ruled unlawful, I wonder if they will have to void any citations issued to date? It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
Wishful thinking! LOL... you know they'll just change the law or rule that those citations are still valid regardless.
VA had that "extra" fine for reckless speeding. From what I understand, drivers may be able to get the fines back, but of course the citation sticks.
Well, I guess I contradicted myself here, but anyways, my point is that if they want too, then can renig on the tickets. But as stated above, I seriously doubt that they will.
Although it is possible to rule a retroactive annulment of prior infractions, the issue resides in the contract and the compensation of the camera operator, rather than with citations being issued.
The people that ran the red lights still broke the law: how the city funds were managed is a different matter.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not a lawyer, but the only way I see this happening, is if it can be proved that the vendor was snapping people unfairly in order to get a bigger commission.
One thing you should learn is that you will never ever get money back from the government. Tax rebates are the only exception and even then, you're still end up with less money overall
So, what's the latest on this?
I've over paid my ticket due to their system's mistake. They stated that they'll be sending me a refund check but that was over a year ago. This is in Rockville, MD as well.
i drove by rockville yesterday noon and i havent heard my redlight camera alert so many times before... that was nuts.
Try driving in DC. I'm telling you... sometimes the redlight/speed alerts happen so often, it's hard to hear the unit giving directions!
