Receiving a Notice of Violation
Based upon images captured by the automated system, you will receive a notice of violation if your vehicle was determined to have committed a red light violation. As the owner of the vehicle, the notice of violation is mailed to you. Review the sample Red Light Citation Instructions for additional details.
You have two options after receiving a notice of violation:
Paying Your Notice of Violation
The fine is $75 for each offense. After the due date, a late fee of $25 will be added to the civil penalty.
If your payment is not received or a hearing in not set prior to the due date indicated on your notice, a $25 late fee may be added to the $75 fine amount.
Results of Ignoring a Notice of Violation
Failure to pay the civil penalty or to contest liability not later than the 30th day after the notice was issued is an admission of liability, and failure to appear at an administrative adjudication hearing after having requested a hearing is an admission of liability and constitutes a waiver of the right to appeal.
Failure to pay the civil penalty within 31 days after receipt of the notice of violation shall result in the imposition of a late-payment fee of $25 and may result in the county tax assessor collector refusing to renew the registration of the vehicle alleged to have been in violation of the city’s ordinance.. If the second notice remains unpaid, collections proceedings and entry of a judgment against you may proceed.
