A sudden flash of light and then bang, you owe the city $500. Today on Las Vegas Best Defense we discuss red light cameras, automated justice at the click of a button. Are red light cameras really about creating safe drivers and protecting lives? Or is money the actual motivation? Who is Redflex Traffic Systems and why do they run so many red light cameras across the country?
Special guest Rick Rathke, law clerk with the Las Vegas Criminal Defense Firm of Pat McDonald, joins us to discuss legal issues surrounding red light cameras. Red light cameras have generated tens of millions of dollars in fines for municipalities. What about the legal issues? Can citizens be convicted of a crime by a computer? Why is one New Mexico town considering shutting off water and power to people who haven’t paid their tickets? We will consider all these questions and discuss why several cities are taking down their red light cameras and a recent class action suit in California against red light cameras. In addition, we will discuss the legal principal of Trial by Battle. Could you end a lawsuit by challenging the other side the combat? Also traffic warnings from Las Vegas Traffic Attorney GotSpeedingTicket.com. All your legal questions answered today from 1-2pm on Las Vegas Best Defense with co-host Las Vegas Web Site Design expert Giuseppe Macchiaverna.
