You may receive a red light photo violation:Joliet Traffic Light Attorney can help you with your red light tickets.
•    If you made a right turn on red without coming to a complete stop

The red light camera tickets are similar to parking tickets. They don't go on your driving record, and they don't increase your insurance rates.  If a camera is used to identify the red light violation, the state will mail you a copy of your photo, along with an explanation of your citation and the amount of fine which needs to be paid. Red light camera tickets are viewed as a non-moving violation because there is no real way to prove who was driving the car at the time of the violation. Red light tickets caught on camera carry a fine of $100.

 If, however, you have several unpaid red light tickets, the consequences become more severe.  If you have several unpaid camera issued red light tickets your license may get suspended even though the tickets were issued through the automated red light camera and this is not considered a moving violation when the ticket is from an automated source.   In Illinois, the ticket is against the owner of the car, not the person driving at the time.

If you have been issued a failure to stop ticket for a red light violation or a stop sign violation, the consequences are  serious.  A police officer issued citation for failure to stop is considered a moving violation and points are added to your driver's license if you plead guilty or are convicted of this infraction.  Convictions for  red light and stop sign tickets can result in a possible license suspension and increased insurance fees.
