I've heard some Calif. camera tickets can be ignored cuz the PD is phishing and doesn't file the tickets with the court Answered

These "tickets" say, on the back, "Do not contact the court about this notice." But the back also says that you MUST fill in the form identiying the driver, and mail it in to the police at an address in Arizona.  What happens if you ignore such a ticket?


See this California Courts page, it should tell you what you need to know
Common Questions About Traffic Tickets
But you should do what official notices ask you, ignoring them is not a good idea if they know where you live and your car's details...


I read an article about video tickets in Arizona. The journalist suggested that any ticket mailed to you can safely be ignored. The next step is that a police officer is dispatched to your house to deliver a summons in person.

A summons isn't legal, either, unless it's delivered in person. But the judges in Arizona are considering them handed in person, even if they are taped to your door while you're away. So once you get those, you better do something about it. That means either show up to court or pay.

This phishing business is news to me. Sounds really strange. Good luck.

Hmm.. the way you describe it, it sounds like they are basically saying you have not been charged with anything, but are asking you to incriminate the person seen in the video so that they CAN file charges. So be a nice guy and confess, lol.

Or throw it in the garbage. Unless there's a court summons, there's nothing that you MUST do.

I would speak to an attorney that specializes in fixin tickets.  Anything you here on a forum might end up in a warrant.

Free legal advice on a maker's forum on the internet might not be worth the paper it's printed on? Shocking! What is the world coming to?
