Permits a Violation Captured by a Speed Camera to be DismissedFull Bill Text
Senate Bill 6178 is pending in the Senate Transportation Committee. If enacted the bill would allow speed camera violations to be dismissed if “any information that is required to be inserted in the notice of liability is omitted from such notice of liability, misdescribed or illegible.”
The NMA supports this measure since errors in automated traffic enforcement systems are well-documented and can further put motorists at a disadvantage. This bill would give motorists a “fighting chance” to defend themselves against a system that never acknowledges its own fallibility.
