    So last night me and a buddy from my MC were riding side by side on our Bikes down the free way 10 over, speed limit dropped from 65 to 55, as soon as we hit the 55 FLASH. So I have to assume the camera hit us going 20 over.
    For a camera flashing you 20 over is it still a criminal speeding charge? Does this effect your CDL since it was in my personal vehicle? Is my life going to come to a screaming end now?

    The only traffic camera ticket I got was one in Texas, red light camera - 105’ long, didn’t get my trailer through in time.

    Anyways - ticket was sent to my company, I paid it, no points or anything. Company said it was a straight revenue grab.

    Where was you at?

    I am in Arizona,
    I researched for a solid hour last night and really didn't find anything. I think it's a revenue thing too. My thing is I have orientation for the company I am working for tomorrow. I'll have to ask them when I get there, give them the update.

    If you haven’t received a citation yet,I’d hold off on saying anything.
    I’ve had the traffic lights in Memphis flash me several times. Haven’t received anything yet.

    I wouldn’t mention it to the company. Wait for the mailman to bring you your present, and address it from there.

    Side question - isn’t it safer to ride staggered, vs. side by side?

    I thought camera tickets
    Go down as
    Non moving violations

    Got one in memphis for running a red light in personal vehicle
    The letter they sent
    Stated it was a non moving violation
    No points taken
    Just pay fine
     
    MACK E-6 and Aamcotrans Thank this.

    You have not been convicted of anything, there for you are not guilty of anything yet. When you pay it, or the judge say guilty as charged is when you have report it then, not before.
    Maybe the camera did not get your plate number, or maybe you go to court and it gets dismissed or reduced to something minor, you only report what you have been convicted of.
    So as of right now don't sweat it.

    No guilty of speed or running a red light does not go down as a non moving violation.

    No you have the right to shut the F)((*)(( up, use it. Keep your mouth shut.

    Different in a company vehicle than a personal vehicle. If the company was smart they would have sent it back stating it was out for service and they dont know who was driving it. The court simply dismisses the ticket. I worked for Valley Bulk and he would send them back, then call you in and tell you to knock it off, and dont get another one.
