A traffic enforcement camera is a camera which may be mounted beside or over a road or installed in an enforcement vehicle to detect traffic regulation violations, including speeding, vehicles going through a red traffic light, unauthorized use of a bus lane, or for recording vehicles inside a congestion charge area. It may be linked to an automated ticketing system.


Speed and red light cameras are a type of automated enforcement technology used to detect and deter speeders and red light runners. Some jurisdictions use similar technology for other traffic violations, such as illegal rail crossings or toll violations.


Many states have enacted legislation permitting, limiting or prohibiting the use of speed or red light cameras at the state or local level. Enforcement can be limited to a particular area or community. Depending the circumstances, it may be prudent to hire an attorney.

Depending on your driving history and the reason for your ticket, your traffic court may allow you complete a defensive driving or traffic school course to avoid adding any driver’s license points and dismiss the ticket. You may need to pay your traffic court fine before you can complete the course. Usually you will only be able to complete a defensive driving course once a year.



Order your driving record to check your drivers license status, check for a suspended license, check for tickets, DUI record or DWI records, look up drivers license number and check the points on your license. Driving records are used for background checks, in court proceedings, and by insurance agencies to adjust your policy rates/premiums and investigate claims.


Convictions, license suspensions, and revocations will show up on your 3-year and 5-year driving records. You may be able to dismiss traffic tickets and remove points from your driving record by completing an online defensive driving course. Because your driving record can affect your auto insurance rates and even your employment, it’s crucial that you make sure your information is accurate.
