Red Light Ticket, VTL 1111 (d)1


In city areas, a frequently issued traffic citation is for a violation of VTL 1111 (d)1. This is more commonly known as a red-light ticket. It alleges that the motorist entered and drove through an intersection after the light turned red.

The first step is to determine whether it is a camera ticket or a ticket issued at a traffic stop. Camera tickets just carry a fine. They do not go on a driving record, do not put points on your license, and do not impact your insurance rates. The ticket is issued against the registered owner of the car, not the driver of the vehicle.

If you received a red-light ticket at a traffic stop then it is more serious. The fine is higher than the usual fine, $278 as opposed to $138. With other violations on the driving record there is a possibility that you will be required to pay an additional Driver Responsibility Assessment Fee. The most significant cost of this infraction is your car insurance rates. Car insurance companies typically raise their rates significantly with a red-light ticket on your driving record.
