Automated picture ticket in West Hollywood..how to get out of it?

Hello guys,

I need a little help with a ticket I got in the mail. I ran a light and the automated machine got me. Now, I have heard theres plenty of ways to get this removed/out of it. On the back of it theres a affidait of non-liability. The picture doesnt even look like me. Now I know I know, this is wrong but hell... Paying $495 is hectic, and not only that my insurance premium is already through the roof. Peeps please help

you dont have to pay it. Those fines are handed out by 3rd party companies and are OPTIONAL. tear it up, trash it, and get on with your life. wont go on your record

Not sure about that....

This is from the first article you linked:

Quote:
Court officials warn that paying red-light camera tickets is not voluntary and that there can be financial and legal consequences for those who fail to resolve their cases in court.

People who ignore red-light camera tickets will receive a court notification. If they again do not respond, a $300 charge will be added to the ticket.

The matter will eventually be referred to a collection agency, which will also try to seek payment. But the Superior Court does not send information on camera tickets to the state Department of Motor Vehicles, meaning the outstanding ticket might not affect a driver's license, credit rating or insurance.

Hearn warned motorists that unpaid tickets remain in the court's system as unresolved. That could be a problem, she said, "if you get a subsequent ticket for some other kind of violation."

An unresolved ticket can also show up in a background check, she said.

In addition, Hearn stressed that red-light camera programs continue to operate in a number of cities other than Los Angeles and that the court's enforcement procedures apply to everyone who receives a ticket in the county.

Lots of open-ended ambiguity there. If I were you, I'd pay the fine and avoid having to look over your shoulder for something that may eventually bite you in the ass.

This is pathetic. You admitted you broke the law..pay the fine.

Driving an ~70k car and whining about a $500 ticket. Give me a break.

No offense, but it sounds like this isn't the first time you got busted for a traffic violation.

I feel your pain and have been there.
