While some people claim that fines related to photo or red light camera traffic tickets don't have to be paid, most of these tickets are valid, as DMV.org explains. Some states do not pursue people who fail to pay these tickets, but not paying is risky.
Some states increase the fines due when traffic violators don't pay their red light photo traffic tickets, and others issue arrest warrants. Photo traffic tickets should be paid using any of the options listed on the ticket itself; typically these include online, phone and pay-by-mail options. Anyone choosing to ignore a photo traffic ticket should consult an attorney first, according to DMV.org.
