Default Red Light Cameras

I am not a red light runner, but I am pretty sure that I have "accidentally" ran a red light in Plano.
If I did run a red light, how long does it usually take to get a ticket in the mail?
This happened over a month ago, and I have not recieved a ticket yet.

TIA!
J

When I lived in Arlington, I ran a red light and got the ticket in a week or two. I'm not sure if Plano follows the same timetable.

Yeah, I think my ticket arrived within a week. (Mine was actually from Allen, however.) If it's been a month, though, I definitely think you're "in the clear."

Just over a month for me on my blatant infraction at Lovers and Central. This was a fun topic on Mark Davis' show this morning. Was it yellow when you entered the intersection?

It took a year for them to send me a ticket, and by the time I got it, they had already tacked on late fees.

Isn't there a maximum time (say like five or six weeks) by which traffic violation ticket has to be issued?

No clue, but when I called about it and asked them what would happen if I didn't pay it, the lady on the phone said nothing.

A turning semi truck blocked the traffic lights, I am pretty sure it was red. I am not too worried about it, I found other posts on here and it sounds like you do not even have to pay it?? Not that it is right not to pay, just saying.

If you don't pay a safelight ticket that you get, eventually you will be reported to a third party company that then will report it to collections...so unfortunately, they have found a way to attack your credit if you don't pay it.

I accidently ran a red light in Bedford and the flash for the camera went off. I never got a ticket. I later found out the red light camera was there for research.
