City of Florida City Right turn on red, $158 fine Florida City, Florida
*Consumer Comment: Take option...
My car has a Pennsylvania license tag. I don't know if the other vehicles had out of state tags or not.
I have requested the following information from the police: 1. Did they issue fines to all four vehicles in the 10 second video? 2. Was there a sign at the intersection indicating "No Turn On Red"? 3. Was the violation that I failed to come to a complete stop before proceeding to turn right?
They have not provided the requested information, nor have they acknowledged my request.
I have these two options: 1. Pay the $158 fine before 5/5/13, otherwise an additional Ciatation and fine of $277 will be levied. 2. Travel from Pennsylvania to Florida for a hearing to plead my case to a "designated official". (If the official concludes that an infraction has been committed, the official may impose a civil penalty not to exceed $500, and court fees and costs)
I would simply pay a more reasonable fine and move on. I would like to know if the other cars making the right turn were Florida tags or not. I suspect the police target out of state cars because they know most will just pay the fine and move on. I turned right to patronize a Florida City restaurant. I won't make that mistake again on my next pass through Florida City.
