Cost of a red light ticket (CVC 21453):

Statistically speaking, red light tickets issued by an officer or a camera are the most common traffic violations in the state of California. Unfortunately, these types of tickets are also some of the most expensive to deal with, often causing swift and unexpected financial burden.

 

This is because the cost of a red light ticket can be as high as $500, which most can agree is not something many can just flippantly afford. It can get even more costly should you have a previous citation in the past 18 months and lose out on the offer of traffic school. The long-term costs associated with the point on your driving record, like hiked insurance rates for at least 3 years, as well as attorney and court fees – means you could be looking at an additional expense as high as $1000.

 

Remember, this is completely separate from the base fine of the red light ticket itself. This can get a little scary! But first, don’t panic. It’s really important that you know there are options available for anyone who doesn’t have the time or the money to spend on fighting a red light ticket in court with attorneys by their side.

 

First things first though, always check a camera-issued ticket and ensure that all of the data reflected on the ticket is actually captured accurately. Unfortunately, with the rise of identity theft, there have been some cases of fraudsters mailing out fake tickets as a con. Check your name, address and vehicle information with a keen eye and examine anything that seems missing or incorrect.
