Should I ignore my red light camera ticket?

Should I ignore my red light camera ticket?

Should I ignore my red light camera ticket?Currently there is a lot of confusion regarding red light camera tickets mainly due to a decision made by the City of Los Angeles to end its red light camera enforcement program as of July 31, 2012. The reason for the confusion by most people is the short stories or sound bites that people read on the internet or hear on the radio without understanding the complete story.

The fact is that the City of Los Angeles ended the red light camera enforcement program at 32 City of Los Angeles intersections. Please note this action was taken by the City of Los Angeles and not by the County of Los Angeles. Therefore, if you have received a red light camera ticket in the mail from Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department or the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority or any other city within Los Angeles County then those tickets are valid and they cannot be ignored.

It is important to note that some of the red light camera enforced locations that fall within the boundaries of the City of Los Angeles are under the jurisdiction of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority and therefore these tickets are also valid red light camera tickets.

If you received a red light camera ticket in the mail with the alleged date of violation after July 31, 2012 then you can be certain that the citation was issued by an agency other than the City of Los Angeles and therefore you cannot ignore the red light camera ticket.
Should you decide to ignore the red light camera ticket, then after a few weeks you will receive a notice from the court informing you that you have ignored your notice to appear date and that the court has assessed you with an additional $300 civil assessment on top of your approximately $500 fine. Now you are looking at almost $800 and you have also lost the right to fight the red light camera ticket with a Trial by Written Declaration. If you further ignore to take action to rectify the red light ticket the court will send the ticket to a collection agency.

Should I ignore my red light camera ticket? In Short it is not a good idea to ignore any kind of a notice that you receive from the court.
