MIAMI, Nov. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ticket Clinic, a leading traffic citation law firm and advocate for motorists is thrilled to announce two victories against red light cameras in South Florida. Separate rulings just days apart, wiped clean thousands of red light violations in Broward and Miami-Dade county as a result of the firm's sustained legal battle against the cameras.
On 11/26/18, the city of Tamarac decided to dismiss all red light camera violation tickets issued prior to May 1, 2018.
"After filing years of motions against red light cameras in Tamarac, our lawyers created a huge back up of cases. I believe in the interest of judicial economy, Tamarac decided to start with a clean slate and dismiss what we estimate thousands of cases." Ted Hollander – Partner, The Ticket Clinic
On 11/27/18, Miami-Dade Judge Leifman issued an Order granting the Ticket Clinic's motion to dismiss all red light camera tickets. The Order declared that 16 different municipalities operating red light camera programs are in violation of the Florida Legislature's intent to have all traffic laws be enforced in a uniform manner. While the Legislature allows municipalities to operate local red light camera programs, Judge Leifman determined that the Legislature did not authorize each municipality to have its own local guidelines. It is expected cities will appeal this decision to the appellate courts and The Ticket Clinic will continue to vigorously defend Judges Leifman's decision.
The decision affects virtually all red light camera citations in Aventura, Bal Harbour, Coral Gables, Cutler Bay, Florida City, Homestead, Key Biscayne, Medley, Miami Gardens, Miami Springs, Miami (Pre-2015,) North Miami Beach, Opa-Locka, Surfside, Sweetwater and West Miami because these cities used local guidelines found improper by Judge Leifman.
All motions and appeals to circuit, district and even the Florida Supreme Court were done Pro Bono, by The Ticket Clinic.
"No other law firm has gone to such lengths to abolish red light cameras in Florida. For years, The Ticket Clinic's lawyers have kept pressure on Florida law makers on behalf of motorists because we believe the cameras are illegal and threat to public safety. Our goal is to have them removed in Florida. Winning these battles is great but there is still plenty of work to be done." – Mark Gold – Founder/CEO, The Ticket Clinic
