Beat Traffic Camera Ticket! My Own Battle…

Before It’s News

To Whom It May Concern, I CONTEST THIS TICKET!

I received a letter (photos of vehicle/plate) claiming I committed a violation of a speeding law in Dayton, Ohio on 08/24/2013.

As per the instructions, I am writing to plead ‘not guilty’ to this charge. Although this option is said to result in this matter going to court; it is my suggestion that the charges simply be dropped. This suggestion comes out of respect for tax payers, and my request that their hard earned money not be wasted in such proceedings.  

As there is no evidence of my involvement with this alleged ‘crime’, as well as the fact that I am not granted my 6th amendment right to face my ‘accuser’ (a camera); I see no way the government could prove my guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. I also see / find no legal requirement for me to implicate someone else in this process, as it is the government’s responsibility to prove a person’s guilt. It is also my 5th amendment right to remain silent on the matter.

Speed cameras aren’t even legal under Dayton Law (R.C. 70.121) Section A. It says that the ATCPS is what imposes the monetary liability. When you read the definition of what an ATCPS is, it’s clear that any camera that is not at an intersection can not be an ATCPS. There are two separate clauses in their short definition that require it to record a vehicle at an intersection to be an ATPCS. If it’s not at an intersection it can’t be an ATCPS and if it isn’t an ATCPS it can’t impose a fine.

That’s not their only problem. Section D 1d requires that they list the intersection, and they cannot do that if it isn’t at an intersection. No notice of liability without listing an intersection can be valid because Dayton law uses the word shall for what must be included. (Download Images and Full Documnent Here)
