American Traffic Solutions, Inc p.o. box 22091 Tempe, Az  86285-2091 which provides the red light camera enforcement program in Hillsborough county and maintains all equipment related to this program and processes all violations warnings
captured by such equipment. review potential violations first then passes it on to the police department

They are not sworn in as Law Enforcement Officer in the state of florida & Hillsborough county  they are out of their
jurisdiction breaking the law by acting as law enforcement officers in another state & count

When a motorist receives a Notice of Violation warning in the mail to the vehicles registered owner. Its not the same as a UTC Uniform Traffic Citation

A red light violation notice of Florida Statutes 316.0083, 316.074(1) and 316.075(1)(c)1 is a civil violation warning against the owner of the vehicle; it is not a UTC Uniform Traffic Citation or a criminal violation images captured by the automated system and reviewed by law enforcement is still not valid its not a real citation

Only a UTC Uniform Traffic Citation has to be issued by a law enforcement officer in person for the violation of Florida Statute 316.0083, 316.074(1) and 316.075(1)(c)1 is valid

Catch 22 Only if you fail to respond to this Notice of Violation warning. Within 30 days You will receive a UTC Uniform Traffic Citation within 60 days of the Violation notice, Dated via certified mail & and still it is not valid

Only a UTC issued by a police officer in person takes precedence over the Notice of Violation warning. Which is a non criminal
infraction that is not reported to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles. and is not reported to insurance agencies.

Florida Statute 316.0083, 316.074(1) and 316.075(1)(c) a UTC Uniform Traffic Citation has to be  issued by a law enforcement officer in person to the driver of the motor vehicle at the time of the violation of a of the red light violation  then it is valid (in other words if  American Traffic Solutions, Inc. which provides the red light camera enforcement program & pass along videos to the police department.  then we the public should be able to do the same and act as law enforcement officers and be able to record with our own video cameras of police officers breaking the law, running red lights, speeding,
illegal u turns, sleeping on the job, flirting with teenagers then our videos should be legally valid as theirs and post them on you tube or pass along videos to the police department so they can be reviewed by several qualified technicians and finally by the police department and be issued UTC Uniform Traffic Citation & proper punishment)

The Government's CAM-SCAM is ILLEGAL!

AUTHOR: Rich - ()

The Government has found a way to put their greedy hands in our pockets with this CAM-SCAM, even though its ILLEGAL! The way they do it, is to call the letters sent by a private company 'civil infractions' rather than 'criminal' moving violations. (Should PRIVATE companies be enforcing the law, FOR PROFIT)?

If you ignore the civil infraction you then get a criminal citation called a UTC (Uniform Traffic Citation) which, if ignored, can indeed make it impossible to renew your tags or Driver License. So, in a nutshell, you have a private company making a HUGE profit by sending civil traffic citations to people in the mail, then kicking about 60% of the $ to the city that is in bed with them.

They, and the cities that sell out their own citizens, claim that this is not done for profit, but rather for public safety. That alone tells you that what we're dealing with is a typical money grab, disguised as a public service.

These thieves are very quick to boast that accidents in intersections with cameras dropped by X% which may be true, but what they DONT tell you is that rear end collisions, from people slamming on the brakes at yellow lights, have TRIPLED since they started their CAM-SCAM.

Studies have proven that some cities have actually SHORTENED THE YELLOW LIGHTS at intersections with the cameras in order to increase their ill gotten gains!

So far 13 States are ripping off their own citizens with this scam, while 12 States have OUTLAWED the cameras altogether. If the cameras were there to document accidents and ticket people who run red lights then they would be a great tool for public safety. But, speaking from experience, what they are doing is perverting the law by sending tickets to people who are driving normally and safely, that turn right on a red light safely, without coming to a complete stop behind the white line.

It would be the same if every car driving at 56 mph in a 55 mph zone got a speeding ticket in the mail (that's next). It's a complete perversion of the law, not to mention the fact that it violates our 4th amendment right to face our accuser (a camera) in a court of law. 

Ive gotten one of these tickets, went to what they call court, and saw 9 out of 10 people just driving normally and getting taxed because they weren't driving like robots, stopping behind the line and then starting again to turn right on a red.

I pled not guilty and went to court and told the entire room of people that they would be crazy to pay for this scam, but that was 3 years ago before the state found loopholes to squeeze more money out of its citizens, back then they were still illegal, so nothing happened when I didn't pay. 

I bought a license plate cover that distorts the angle view of my tag but looks normal from behind, and in 3 years I've gotten no more tickets, nor have I been pulled over for the plate. You can buy one for yourself, just look on the web, or go to my website, where I have done extensive research on the subject. I don't know if I can post a website here but I'll try, and if it doesn't show up just look up Phantom Plate to distort your tag and avoid this scam.

Try FIXTIX. US to see the research I've done on the subject, and also articles on how to deal with the letter if you get one, and how to block your tag from angle view. Most important though is DON'T BE SHEEPLE!! Be people! Don't mail some scum thief company in Arizona, a private company, your money! If you ran a red light you have to pay, but if its like 90% of these tickets, and just a right on red that you didn't stop long enough for DON'T PAY THEM! Hire a ticket lawyer for $79 and slow down their process, and avoid the ticket as the lawyer demands maintenance records on the cameras, etc.

One final word, to see what is REALLY up with is situation, since I can't post a link here, just go to Google or any search engine and search OHIO JUDGE TRAFFIC CAMERAS. That will give you many resources that help show this for what it really is, an unconstitutional, perverted money grab by greedy companies and greedy city governments!

Search OHIO JUDGE TRAFFIC CAMERAS. Dont blindly send your money to these THIEVES, And get a tag cover for your tag to protect yourself! This is not about promoting my site, but if it gets posted go to fixtix.us for more resources and tag cover info!

GOOD LUCK!

You do realize something... Right?

AUTHOR: DFerguson - (United States of America)

You do realize that it is your local government and law enforcement that had those cameras put into place and that what you are saying is moot?

Larry and Perjury charge

AUTHOR: Bubba Lee - (Canada)

I really hope your local law enforcement has the time to follow this up.

You just admitted to intending to Perjure your self.

And yes I know you haven't yet and you think testifying that the picture "looks like" isn't a lie.

What it comes down to is you will be asked who was driving the car you are responsible for and if you can't you get the ticket, if you won't you get the ticket, if you lie its a felony.

Kinda the same thing here

AUTHOR: Larry - (U.S.A.)

In January 2011 my wife and I were living in two different homes 75 miles apart.  Our vehicles were both registered to the small rural town I was living in.  My wife, who was living in Phoenix, was in Tempe one Saturday morning and was caught by a speed camera on the city streets.

The city of Tempe mailed a citation to me with a copy of a grainy photo.  Knowing a little about the law I wrote back and said I was not convinced that the citation had been issued by the court as it lacked a court seal.  I requested that they serve the citation by a process server.  Since my home was over 100 miles from Tempe and the photo did not clearly identify the driver, the city apparently decided not to proceed with their complaint.  I never heard anymore about it.

That's too bad because I really wanted to go to trial.  I would have testified under oath (and truthfully) that I was not the driver and the picture was definitely not me.  In theory, the prosecutor can demand that I identify the driver and I was prepared to testify, under oath, that the person pictured driving my car looked to me like Roger Ebert.
