Surprise! rec'd red light ticket in Hamilton

UPDATE: Has anyone gone and opted guilty with an explanation? Was your fine decreased? thanks!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Good evening,

I just received in the mail a red light camera ticket from City of Hamilton.

The ticket fine is $325. Honestly I did not know there were red light cameras in Hamilton. Is there a way to get the fine reduced? I am a small business owner who doesn't have a steady income, so $325 is quite steep for me. If I have to pay the whole amount, can I pay in installments?

Does it matter that the Date of Deemed Service on the ticket is November 16, 2010. I received it today, November 15.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi all,

Just an FYI...I went today to court, talked to the Justice of the Peace and got my fine reduced to $125! :D

An ironically, in today's Hamilton Spectator the front page article was in regards to Red Light Cameras.

I've learnt to be more cautious, so all the best to those that received one!
