California Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Red-Light Cameras

A unanimous state Supreme Court ruling on Thursday made it easier to ticket drivers who were caught by cameras making moving violations.

“The California Supreme Court said that this evidence is admissible, it’s reliable and essentially the photograph is a silent witness that speaks for itself,” criminal defense attorney Alison Triessl said.

The ruling came after a woman brought her $436 ticket to the court stating that the ticket was not valid unless there was a witness to the violation.
