(Offense date July 1, 2013 or after)
The Florida Legislature made changes to the Red Light Camera Laws for offenses occurring July 1, 2013 and after.
If the offense date on the Notice of Violation is July 1, 2013 or after, a hearing on a Notice of Violation will be handled at an administrative hearing at the city level instead of in the court system. At this administrative hearing, the hearing officer will look at the video and hear anything you wish to present. Formal rules of evidence do not apply, but Due Process will be given. The hearing officer will make a determination based on the evidence presented.
Contesting the Notice of Violation
If you choose to contest a Notice of Violation, you may come down to the police station where you will need to fill out paperwork to contest the charges. If you have to change the hearing date or you wish to cancel your appearance, you can do so one time in writing within 5 days of the hearing subject to a statutorily imposed $50 cancellation fee. If you go to a hearing and win, you will incur no fees.
Administrative Fee For Guilty Verdicts
If you go to a hearing and are found guilty, you may be subject to an administrative fee up to $250 dollars.
The $250 administrative fee is in addition to the $158 ticket. When you file the paperwork to contest the hearing, you are required to sign a document indicating that you understand these additional fees. By doing so at the police station, we will be able to answer any questions you have about your options.
