When people receive a traffic-camera ticket in the mail, they likely all react the same way. I’m going to fight it, he says. It’s just not right, she says to herself.
The gut reaction is common, because there are many questions. Was I even driving during that time? Can they prove I was the one driving? Does this still-frame photo that shows my vehicle in the intersection with a red light prove that it wasn’t yellow when I entered, and does it indicate that it wasn’t the safest choice?
Yep. We all dream of fighting these cases and likely envision ourselves delivering an impassioned speech to the court as if we were the main character in a John Grisham novel.
But, in reality, we usually pay the ticket and move on.
However, Adam J. MacLeod, a law professor from Faulkner University in Alabama, didn’t let it go. He lived our dreams for us.
