A Hannibal Red Light Camera Ticket Is A 2-Point Moving Violation

How To Get Your Hannibal Red Light Camera Ticket Reduced To A Non-Moving Violation

You can fight a Hannibal red light camera ticket, just like you would fight a speeding ticket. You can do this by hiring an experienced traffic law attorney to get your Hannibal red light camera ticket reduced from a 2-point ticket to a non-moving, no-point infraction that won’t affect your driving record or car insurance rates.

No court appearance will be required if you hire an attorney to represent you.

You will have to pay a fine and court costs in exchange for having your red light camera ticket reduced to a no-point violation. The fine will be slightly higher than the original fine you would have paid if you had pleaded guilty. Your attorney can give you an estimate of the fine and court costs you will have to pay.

What If Your Red Light Camera Ticket Is Not Issued In Your Name

Professional truck drivers who receive red light camera tickets in Hannibal often don’t realize they got the ticket until their employer tells them about it. That’s because red light camera tickets are issued in the name of the company that owns the truck, and the ticket is mailed to the owner.

If your red light camera ticket is issued in the name of your company or employer, you can still fight the ticket and avoid having points added to your driving record.

First, you will have to contact the Hannibal Police Department to ask them to re-issue the ticket in your name. The easiest way to do that is to fill out the Nomination Affidavit on the back of the red light camera ticket and fax it to the Hannibal Police Department.

After your red light camera ticket is re-issued in your name, it will have a new ticket number and a new court date. Then you can hire a traffic law attorney to get your ticket reduced to a non-moving violation.

What To Do If Your Employer Already Paid The Fine For Your Red Light Camera Ticket

As noted above, red light camera tickets are issued to the registered owner of the vehicle, not to the driver. Sometimes the driver’s employer receives the ticket and pays the fine without telling the driver. Then points are added to the driver’s driving record.

If this happens, you can contact the Hannibal police department and ask them to re-issue the ticket in your name. Then you can hire a traffic ticket lawyer to get your Hannibal red light camera ticket reduced to a non-moving, no-point violation.

If your employer paid the fine and the court date has already passed, your attorney may have to withdraw your plea before proceeding with your case.

What To Do If Someone Borrows Your Car And Gets A Red Light Camera Ticket

If your friend borrows your car and gets a red light camera ticket in Hannibal, Missouri, the court will mail the ticket  to you (the registered owner of the vehicle), not to the person who was actually driving your car when they ran the red light.

Here’s how to avoid paying the fine and getting points added to your driving record in this situation:

  • Look on the back of your red light camera ticket where you will see a “Nomination Affidavit”
  • Fill out the Nomination Affidavit and fax it to the Hannibal Police Department
  • The information that you put on the Nomination Affidavit will show the police who was driving your car when the red light camera ticket was issued
  • The police will void your ticket and issue a new ticket to the person who was actually driving your car when the red light camera ticket was issued

What Does It Cost To Get A Hannibal Red Light Camera Ticket Reduced To A Non-Moving Violation?

Many traffic ticket lawyers charge a flat-fee price for legal representation. They can also give you an estimate of the fine and court costs you will have to pay after they get your red light camera ticket reduced to a non-moving violation.
