Nassau County Red Light Camera Tickets

Motorists in Nassau County must consider these: A ticket issued by a police officer for passing a red light is equivalent to 3 dmv points and the conviction stays on your driving record for four years. However, a red light camera ticket does not add dmv points and has no effect on your driving record or insurance. In Nassau County, Long Island, the ticket costs about $80.

A red light camera ticket is not issued by a police officer. In the intersection’s light cycles, a camera is digitally recording vehicles. The images are reviewed at the end of the day by the reviewer and if they decide that your car was in the intersection after the light turned red or that you failed to come to a complete stop before turning right on red, then the registrant of the vehicle will be charged with passing the red light. They are able to identify the vehicle’s registrant by the license plates on the car. The ticket is then mailed to the registrant so if you lend your car to anyone that fails to stop for a red light; you, as the registrant, will receive and are responsible for the ticket.

Notice of violation sent to the registrant of the vehicles contains the information necessary. You can review the on-line still and moving images in your case. This image will be the evidence used to prosecute you at trial. You have the option to plead guilty or not guilty. If you choose to plead not guilty, you have to report to trial on a Wednesday afternoon. If you plead guilty, you have to pay the fine.

The Nassau County Traffic & Parking Violations Agency does plea bargain or reduce fines on red light camera tickets.

If you do not respond to a red light camera ticket, you will have the fine increased and the vehicle registration will be suspended. If your registration is suspended, the registration cannot be renewed. It is considered a misdemeanor crime to drive a car with a suspended registration and the car can be impounded as well.
