Red-Light Camera Legal Motion - Seattle, WA
NMA member Dennis Eros filed this motion in March 2009 with the Municipal Court of Seattle, WA in defending himself against a photo ticket for allegedly driving through a red light. The motion makes several cogent points in challenging the legitimacy of red-light cameras as traffic enforcement devices, particularly as related to a defendant’s due process rights. Not surprisingly, Dennis Eros’ red-light ticket was dismissed based on procedural grounds. The Municipal Court of Seattle thereby avoided having to rule on his motion. Mr. Eros is not an attorney, and anyone choosing to adapt the arguments of the Eros motion for use in other situations and/or jurisdictions should consult their own attorney first.
